Running on Empty Tour July 25 at Chattahoochee Tech will look at gas prices

Tea Party Publicity
$7,888,608.48 --- This is how much extra money Americans have had to spend since the cost of gasoline has increased from $1.08 to $3.50 per gallon in the past three years! The Pickens County Tea Party is proud to host the Americans for Prosperity's RUNNING ON EMPTY TOUR in response to the administrations famous quote, "Energy prices will necessarily skyrocket".
This tour, which has been in Kansas, Ohio, Minnesota, Missouri, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Nebraska, is trying to educate the public on what can be done through executive action to bring down the cost of fuel and restore stability in the market. Citizens will be able to see how much their own gas bill has gone up. They can calculate the impact of the administrations energy policies and see how overregulation of the industry has affected them personally.
In other words, how bad energy policies, overregulation by the EPA and other government agencies, and politics has blocked domestic production and left Americans RUNNING ON EMPTY. Empty tank policies like illegal moratoriums on drilling after the Gulf accident, canceling existing oil and gas leases, locking up lands in the west and north, and EPA's job-crushing regulations will be examined.
So come join the Americans for Prosperity team on July 25th at Chattahoochee Technical College in Jasper at 7 p.m. for the Pickens County Tea Party meeting to learn what you can do to block and stop this key drain on the economy
