    The American Petroleum Institute pays hordes of PR hacks to try to hoodwink the public and dress up a pig.  I should know.  I used to work in the PR Department of one of API's bestest friends -- Edison Electric Institute (I was 19 and working my way through college; please don't beat me!)  API is just a Trade Association.  Of course, most people outside of DC don't necessarily know that.  But that's all API is -- a group set up by the oil industry to further the industry's interests in DC through PR and Advertising and ... Lobbying.  Anyway, if I know it's a Trade Association, I figure they're just doing what they're paid for -- selling crap to the public.
