Oil & gas industry lobbying expenditure in the U.S. 1990-2020, by receiving party

The Republican Party has historically been the greatest recipient of oil & gas companies' lobbying expenditures in the United States. Between 1990 and 2020, the oil & gas industry significantly ramped up its spending on lobbying for political parties. Whereas spending aimed towards the Democratic Party saw only slight fluctuations, lobbying for the Republican Party surged to a peak of 58.2 million U.S. dollars in the midterm election year 2012. In 2020, oil majors such as Chevron Corp and ExxonMobil had shelled out some 39 million U.S. dollars for the Republican Party, compared with 7 million U.S. dollars which went to the Democratic Party. The greatest recipient that year was President Trump.
