Americans for Prosperity Foundation to Launch National Running on Empty Tour

Americans for Prosperity Foundation will launch the Running on Empty Tour with stops throughout the United States this summer and through the fall. The tour warns American taxpayers how President Obama’s regulatory and energy policies are causing skyrocketing energy prices – particularly prices at the gas pump.
“Big government regulations have Americans running on empty. When President Obama took office, the price of gasoline was $1.83 per gallon; it’s now $3.78 per gallon, a 106 percent increase. Since taking office, he has paid lip service to allowing domestic production but has taken every step possible to block American energy,” said Americans for Prosperity Foundation President Tim Phillips. “Obama’s hostility toward domestic production and his desire to use high gas prices to change Americans’ driving behavior are contributing to the escalating cost of fuel.”
The goal of AFP Foundation’s Running on Empty Tour is to educate the public on what the Obama Administration could do through executive action to bring down the cost of fuel and restore stability in the market. AFP Foundation has pledged to mobilize citizens to speak out against the disastrous energy policies in place and the pain these policies are causing them at the gas pump each time they fill up.
The first swing of the Running on Empty Tour will begin on Wednesday, June 8 in Nebraska and will continue through Kansas, Missouri, and Minnesota. Click here to see the full schedule.
Concerned citizens at the tour stops will be encouraged to determine how much their gas bill has gone up since Obama took office. They will also be able to go online to RunningOnEmptyTour.com to calculate the impact of the Administration’s energy policies and its overregulation of industry.
