Media Advisory: AFP to Host “True Cost of Washington” Event in Eau Claire

May 27, 2022 by AFP

Eau Claire, WI – Americans for Prosperity-Wisconsin (AFP-WI) announced today that the grassroots group will host a gift card giveaway to highlight the true cost of Washington’s bad policies and the pain runaway inflation is causing families and small business owners.

On the first day of the Biden Administration, the national average for gasoline was $2.38 a gallon. Today, the average price for unleaded gas in Wisconsin has skyrocketed to $4.35 a gallon. To highlight this stark difference and the true cost of Washington’s policies, the first 100 people to drop by the event will receive a $24 gift card from Roadside Ice Cream & Diner – representing the difference in filling the average gas tank from January 2021 to today.

AFP-WI spokespeople will be available for comment and interview onsite.
