Energy for America Tour Has Two Stops in Colorado
Concerned about the harmful impacts rising energy prices are having on Colorados economy, Americans for Prosperity on Tuesday is hosting two Energy for America Tour stops on the state’s Western Slope. The tour is meant to encourage energy policy changes that will increase supply, lower costs, generate good American jobs and reduce our reliance on foreign imports
America is a nation too rich in domestic energy resources to be constantly facing shortages, price spikes and an over-reliance on foreign suppliers of something so critical to our economic survival and well-being,” said AFP State Direcor Jeff Crank. “Unfortunately, most of our energy resources have been placed off-limits by President Obama, federal elected officials, and unelected bureaucrats. The result is gas prices above $3 a gallon at a time when America is facing a double-dip recession, or worse.
The Energy for America tour is all about reducing the burden of energy prices on Colorado families by encouraging domestic exploration and production of our vast energy resources and getting government out of the free market taxpayers should never have been on the hook for companies like Solyndra, explained Crank.
On Tuesday, October 25, the tour will stop in Grand Junction at 12 Noon at City Hall Auditorium (250 N. 5th St.) and in Craig at 6:00 p.m. at Pavilion at the Moffat County Fairgrounds.

In addition, citizens can sign a petition here telling Washington enough is enough it’s time to get serious about adopting a reality-based energy policy that improves America’s energy security and gets Americans working again.
Energy for America is a joint project of Americans for Prosperity, American Energy Alliance, and the Institute for Energy Research.
