WAUSAU, WI (WSAU) - A political action group is giving you gas money to make a point. Americans For Prosperity Wisconsin Director Luke Hilgemann says they are giving you an opportunity this morning to remember what it was like just 3 1/2 years ago. "We are doing a gas rollback event at Mount View Mobil in Rib Mountain. The first 300 people in line can get gas for $1.84 per gallon, the price that it was before President Obama took office." There is a fifteen gallon limit per customer. Participants will have to pay regular price for the 16th and subsequent gallons.
Political opponents say this type of event violates Wisconsin election laws. Hilgemann says AFP doesn’t endorse any candidate but they do criticize bad policies of lawmakers. They will be passing out a petition for people to consider signing, which criticises the policies of current office holders Barack Obama and Tammy Baldwin.
A nearby fast food restaurant is also planning to serve cars in line at the pump while they wait.
