September 27, 2008

David Sykuta, executive director of the Illinois Petroleum Council, will speak at Lindenwood University on the price of gasoline at 3 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 6, on the main Lindenwood campus.

Sykuta will present his talk, titled “Why So High? Gasoline Prices and U.S. Energy Policy,” in the Anheuser-Busch Leadership Room of the Spellmann Center on the main Lindenwood campus, 209 S. Kingshighway, St. Charles, Mo., 63301.

Admission is free, and the public is welcome. The event is co-hosted by Lindenwood’s Institute for the Study of Economics and the Environment (ISEE) and its School of Business and Entrepreneurship.

Sykuta has been the executive director of the Illinois Petroleum Council since 1986. He received his bachelor’s degree from Illinois State University and attended graduate school at the University of Illinois. Early in his career he was an intern for the Illinois Senate, was a consultant for the Senate Republican staff, and was active in several state campaigns.

In 1996, Sykuta co-founded the Partnership for Environmental Progress, a coalition of more than 80 businesses, labor unions, agricultural groups, trade associations, corporations, and scientific groups whose goals are “cleaner environment, economic growth and sound public policies.”

Sykuta has also served on the Illinois Environmental and Regulatory Review Commission. He has been a commentator on numerous local and national media outlets, including Fox News, CNN, WGN, ABC, CBS, PBS’ Chicago Tonite, and numerous print and electronic outlets.
