In recent months, leading up to Election Day, conservative groups have done some temporary gas price rollbacks.
On Tuesday, a Connecticut radio station is doing the same with a gas rollback to $1.84 in Groton.
The reason groups have all picked $1.84 is that it was the national average price for gas right after President Barack Obama took office.
On Tuesday, Election Day, 94.9 FM News Now and Stimulating Talk is offering gas for $1.84 a gallon to the first 100 cars to gas-up started at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 6 at the Mobil station on Route 184,
The first 100 cars will receive 10 gallons worth of gas at $1.84, cash only.
Lee Elci will broadcast his morning show live that day, while he fills cars up at the pre-Obama gas price.
“Connecticut residents pay some of the highest gas prices in the country, and to me, that’s just not American! Our listeners deserve better, and on a day where we as nation exercise our right to change, I’m going to save my listeners some!” Elci said in a news release. “We just deserve better, and I’m turning back the clock to when things were better…before President Obama took office.”
The news release said John Fuller, owner and president of Full Power Radio, wanted to do something to reward the listeners of 94.9 News Now and Elci’s show.
