The founder and president of Restoration PAC told The Georgia Star News and The Star News Network the committee’s new ad buy reminds Georgia voters that their Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock supports President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and his energy policies that led to skyrocketing gasoline prices.

“We were energy independent and gas prices were in the $2-per-gallon range until Joe Biden and Raphael Warnock came along,” said Doug Truax, who leads the Downers Grove, Ill., based Restoration PAC. The ad began running Thursday.

“Through a series of deliberate, ideological steps, they stifled the production of American energy and have us begging for oil from hostile countries,” he said. The initial ad budget is approximately $500,000 and is scheduled to air in the Atlanta and Savannah media markets.

“Gas prices nationally were $2.33 cents per gallon when Biden and Warnock took office in January 2021,” according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. “This week, gas prices averaged $4.37 per gallon, according to the Metro Business Daily’s “Gasoline Misery Index.”

The 30-second ad highlights the Democrats’ war on domestic energy production and how it is contributing heavily to skyrocketing gas prices throughout the state and country.

The ad’s script is below:

Woman: Got to fill up, I’ll call you back, honey. What?

Announcer: American energy production kept gas prices down.

More and more, we are going overseas for oil that is right under our feet.

That’s the Democrat green energy plan. 

High gas prices? Joe Biden did that.

And with his support for Biden’s policies, Raphael Warnock did that, too.

Woman: Eighty bucks to fill up. Biden and Warnock did that.

Announcer: Restoration PAC is responsible for the content of this advertising.
