Fosters: Group Sells Cheap Gas to Protest Fed Energy Policy
MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Motorists got a deal on their fill-ups after a conservative political action group paid a New Hampshire gas station to offer cheap gas in criticism of President Barack Obama’s energy policies.
Americans for Prosperity was offering up to 15 gallons of gas at $1.84 a gallon to the first 150 motorists who showed up at a station in Manchester between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. Sunday.
The group says $1.84 a gallon reflects the price of gas four years ago before President Obama took office.
Corey Lewandowski, the group’s New Hampshire director, says it’s time to boost domestic energy production and stop spending money on Obama’s green-energy programs.
