WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Chet Thompson, President and CEO of the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers, made the following statement regarding the Administration’s announcement of tariffs on products made in Mexico:

“Imposing tariffs on Mexican products, particularly crude oil, could raise energy prices for U.S. consumers, disadvantage the U.S. refining industry and jeopardize passage of USMCA — all bad outcomes. We thus urge the President not to pursue energy tariffs against one of our most important trading partners.”
