Sam Rasoul Hopes Cheap Gas Turns Into Votes
Democrat Sam Rasoul has figured out a way to generate interest in his underdog campaign against U.S. Rep. Robert W. Goodlatte (R-Va.).
On Wednesday, starting at 4 p.m., Rasoul's campaign staff will be pumping discounted gas at the Texaco Food Mart on South High Street in Harrisonburg. For 40 minutes, motorists will be able to get up to 10 gallons of gas for $1-a-gallon less than retail price.
"With gas around $4 per gallon, it is about time we get serious about finding a solution to the fuel crisis," said Rasoul, who expects to serve about 100 motorists. "While this is only a one-time event, we hope it increases awareness of the problem and provides some needed relief for middle class families."
Ally McIntosh, a Rasoul spokeswoman, said the campaign will reimburse the owner of the gas station for the discounts.
