$1.22 A Gallon For Gas - Benjy Dunn's Filling Station - Biscoe, NC
Gas for $1.22? For 1 hour

How about a gallon of gas for $1.22?

You can fill up your car with gas at that price today, but you'll have to drive 75 miles each way from Charlotte -- and you might find yourself in the middle of a crowd.

And you also might face a bit of a political message.

Benjy Dunn's Filling station, at 103 West Main Street in Biscoe, will be selling gas for $1.22 a gallon between noon and 1 p.m. today. Biscoe is in Montgomery County, east of Charlotte.

The whole idea is the brainchild of Larry Kissell, a Democrat running for Congress in the 8th District against four-time incumbent Republican Robin Hayes of Concord. Benjy Dunn's Filling Station is across the street from Kissell's campaign headquarters.

1. Now THAT's some novel campaigning -- offer gas at pre-Bush
prices to emphasize what a disaster the repubs have been.

2. Very imaginative...and good to see
If that doesn't cause a few Repukes to stop and for the first time in years, think, I don't know what would, short of actually sending the assholes to Baghdad to fight the war they love so much.
