BISCOE, N.C. (AP) - Congressional candidate Larry Kissell is pumping up his campaign by selling gas for $1.22 a gallon, highlighting the energy votes of incumbent Rep. Robin Hayes...
Thacker said the campaign is purchasing the gas for $3.96 per gallon. Kissell has said that $1.22 was the price per gallon when Hayes took office a decade ago.
The social studies teacher has accused Hayes of working in the interests of oil companies and rejecting proposals that would have expanded alternative fuel.
Thacker said the campaign wants to use the Father's Day gas to help those in the community struggling to get to work.
