AFP-NM to Host Additional “True Cost of Washington” Event in Albuquerque

Jul 22, 2022 by AFP

Washington’s reckless spending and crushing regulations have New Mexicans paying more and getting less. Inflation in New Mexico is topping nearly 9%. Meanwhile, gas prices have skyrocketed to the tune of $4.33 per gallon in the state.

That’s why AFP-New Mexico will be rolling back the price of gasoline to $2.38, the price per gallon 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 gasoline for Sullivan Chevron customers in Albuquerque.

WHO: AFP-NM State Director Burly Cain

AFP-NM Community Engagement Director Lucas “Luke” Gauthier (505) 274-8455

WHEN: Saturday, July 23, 2022, 9:00 am – 10:00 am

WHERE: Sullivan Chevron at 9633 Montgomery Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM 87111

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.
