The Gingrich campaign today released a new advertisement outlining Newt’s "$2.50 plan" to lower gas prices.
“Since Barack Obama’s inauguration, gas prices have doubled,” the narrator says in it.
As an image of a gas pump appears with a price ticker hitting $4, the narrator adds, “They didn’t go down when Obama bowed to Saudi oil princes. But they can go down under the Newt Gingrich two-fifty-per-gallon plan."
According to the ad, Gingrich's plan lowers gas prices by “increasing domestic production, opening up off-shore drilling, building the Keystone Pipeline, cutting red-tape regulation."
At the end, an image appears of a gas pump nozzle pushed up against a man’s back like a weapon. “The Gingrich two-fifty plan stops the great gas hold up and puts money back in your pocket,” the narrator says.
