AFP-Missouri to Hold “True Cost of Washington” Event in Fredericktown

May 24, 2022 by AFP

AFP-MO will roll back gas prices to $2.12, the price per gallon in Missouri the day before President Biden took office

FREDERICKTOWN, MO — Americans for Prosperity-Missouri will host a grassroots awareness event this Thursday, May 26 to highlight the “True Cost of Washington” and its impact on hardworking Missourians.

Washington’s reckless spending and crushing regulations have Missourians paying more and getting less. Inflation in the Show-Me State is topping nearly 11%, a $587 per month cost per household. Meanwhile, gas prices have skyrocketed to the tune of $4.16 per gallon in the state.

That’s why AFP-Missouri will be rolling back the price of gasoline to $2.12, the price per gallon in Missouri on the day President Biden took office. To highlight this stark difference and the true cost of Washington’s policies, AFP is paying the difference for 90-minutes for Gulf customers in Fredericktown.

WHO: Americans for Prosperity-Missouri State Director Jeremy Cady

WHEN: Thursday, May 26, 2022, 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm

WHERE: Gulf, 1005 Walton Dr., Fredericktown, MO 63645

RSVP: Caitlin Gallagher, cgallagher@standtogether.org or (206) 402-8432.

The True Cost of Washington

AFP’s The True Cost of Washington campaign will educate Americans about the truth behind rising costs while offering real solutions to make everyday life more affordable. Thanks to skyrocketing inflation, Americans across the country can expect to spend an extra $5,200 to maintain the same standard of living as last year, and an extra $1,433 for gasoline.

poll recently conducted by Public Opinion Strategies for AFP found that 75% of Americans reported that the increase in costs has impacted their consumer behavior over the past year. Most individuals surveyed agreed that government policies and regulations have caused price increases. 61% of those surveyed blamed President Biden for this increase.

AFP’s solutions to combat these rising prices garnered support, with 88% of respondents agreeing the government should make it easier to produce energy domestically, and 82% agreeing with getting government spending under control by tackling the federal debt and reducing federal budget deficits.
