The Maryland chapter of Americans for Prosperity is hosting a two-hour promotion Thursday in Towson where drivers can pay just $1.84 for a gallon of gas.
The first 150 cars to arrive at the Towson Hess station, located at 1618 East Joppa Road, will be able buy gas at the price per gallon from when President Barack Obama took office, according to a release from Americans for Prosperity.
“When President Obama took office in January 2009, gas cost just $1.84 per gallon,” Americans for Prosperity Maryland State Director Dave Schwartz said in a statement. “Because of the president’s failing economic and energy policies, we’ve seen gas prices go to nearly $4 per gallon.”
Americans for Prosperity is a national organization committed to advancing individual economic freedoms while reducing the size and intrusiveness of government.
“By reminding drivers how different things were just a few short years ago, we can continue to show folks that by embracing energy independence and economic freedom, we can get America back on track,” Schwartz said.
