Ghosts, Goblins and Snubbed Energy Sources

The thing about PR, especially if you're an energy lobby, is that you've got to be alert for snubs, even at Halloween. So when the Department of Energy (DOE) issued some pumpkin stencil ideas without including fossil fuels, the American Petroleum Institute (API) produced some jack-o-lantern adornments of its own. 

DOE plugged compact fluorescent lamps, solar energy and wind turbines, but no gas and oil. So API issued some carving suggestions on a dime. (Maybe Ichabod Crane's a staff member.) Happy Halloween!
