McCain Ad Blames Obama For Rising Gas Prices

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican presidential candidate John McCain
is launching a new television ad that blames Democratic rival
Barack Obama for rising gasoline prices.
The ad, airing on national cable and in 11 battleground states,
argues that the cost of fuel is rising because of opposition to oil
drilling in the United States.
The announcer in the ad says, "Gas prices - $4, $5, no end in
sight, because some in Washington are still saying no to drilling
in America. No to independence from foreign oil. Who can you thank
for rising prices at the pump?"
A photograph of Obama appears on the stage as a voiceover of a
crowd chants: "Obama, Obama, Obama!"
