Dallas, Texas - The New American Energy Opportunity Foundation [NAEOF] launched a statewide "Gas Can Man" campaign in Cincinnati on Monday offering drivers gasoline at $1.84 a gallon. "It was just like the good old days before President Obama began imposing regulations and restrictions that hiked pump prices to record highs," said NAEOF president Martin Fleming.
The 'Gas Man' promotion, which attracted large crowds of consumers and extensive media coverage, will be repeated in cities throughout the state in the coming days. "Our objective is to drive home the point that "relief at the pump can be achieved with a new path on energy and new leadership," according to Fleming.
The NAEOF announced last week that it was embarking on a mega-buck campaign to educate Americans about the destructive actions of the Obama administration raising the price of gasoline and blocking America from energy independence. Fleming said the campaign includes:
* a $1 million national radio ad buy
* up to $200 thousand in supplemental radio spot buys in the state of Ohio
* heavy newspaper saturation this week targeting Ohio
* special events [i.e. Gas Man] aimed at energizing voters in Ohio
* One-on-one voter contact
* Extensive $300,000 Internet presence, including a new video
The Ohio "Gas Can Man" events are slated to take place on October 31 at the Mason Marathon station at 6391 Reading Rd. in Mason, OH from 10:00 AM to Noon and from Noon to 3:00 PM at the Cleaves BP station at 21 W. State Street, Cleaves, OH.
Events are also scheduled on Thursday, November 1 at the Fast Stop station at 4501 w. 8th St. Cincinnati, OH from 9:00 AM until NOON, the Camden Crossing BP (between Westchester and Dayton) 201 West Central Ave., in Camden OH, from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM and at the Goshen BP station at 6778 Goshen Road, Goshen, OH from NOON to 3:00 pm.
NAEOF added that "Gas Can Man" events are also planned at gas stations in Dayton, Youngstown, Akron, Toledo and Cleveland, dates and times to be announced.
"Our messaging is focused on the need to begin tapping America's enormous energy resources now, not later. In the past few years, America has seen revolutionary breakthroughs in the amount of oil and gas we can develop. These breakthroughs mean that with America has all the energy we need, right under our feet," said Fleming.
NAEOF believes that leasing for energy development on federal land, including Alaska and offshore, should be returned to historic levels. This will generate royalties for the federal treasury which can be used to pay down our debt, create millions of new jobs and increase domestic energy production to lower the price of gasoline, the foundation contends.
