AFP's Running on Empty Tour coming to Ohio, July 5, 6, 7

COLUMBUS, OH. – Americans for Prosperity Foundation, the premiere free-market educational organization, announces Ohio stops on its Running on Empty Tour, July 5, 6, and 7.  The tour is stopping throughout the United States this summer and fall, and warns taxpayers how President Obama’s regulatory and energy policies are causing skyrocketing energy prices – particularly prices at the gas pump.
“As Ohioans struggle to make ends meet, their bank accounts are shrinking as big government’s over-regulation is causing skyrocketing gas prices, food prices and energy costs,” said Americans for Prosperity Foundation Ohio State Director Rebecca Heimlich.

“Obama’s hostility toward domestic production and his desire to use high gas prices to change Americans’ driving behavior are contributing to the escalating cost of fuel,” said Americans for Prosperity Foundation President Tim Phillips.
The goal of AFP Foundation’s Running on Empty Tour is to educate the public on what the Obama Administration could do through executive action to bring down the cost of fuel and restore stability in the market.  AFP Foundation has pledged to mobilize citizens to speak out against the disastrous energy policies in place and the pain these policies are causing them at the gas pump each time they fill up.
