Orlando, FL — On Tuesday, Aug. 2, Americans for Prosperity (AFP) will partner with a local gas station, Carrigan Marathon, in Oviedo, FL, to lower gas to $2.38 per gallon – the national average in mid-January 2021 – as compared to the current average gas price in Florida at $4.03 per gallon. This grassroots awareness event is part of AFP’s national “The True Cost of Washington” campaign, which highlights rising costs for Americans and their businesses. In May alone, Floridians spent an extra $681 out of pocket due to inflation.

AFP-FL experts will discuss the truth behind rising costs and propose real solutions to make everyday life more affordable for Floridians and their businesses. As these events will occur throughout the state, Floridians can find out when the tour is coming near them here. More information on the True Cost of Washington can also be found here.

WHEN: Tuesday, Aug. 2, from 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

WHERE: Carrigan Marathon – 3015 Alafaya Trail, Oviedo, FL 32765

WHY: The federal government’s top-down spending policies and burdensome regulations have led to skyrocketing costs, the highest levels of inflation in four decades, and supply chain crises.
