Children Are Now Protesting Gas Prices

Sadie and Pyper Vance ages 9 and 7 recently marched downtown Salt Lake carrying a sign that said “all of my mom’s money goes to the gas tank.” The reason these two little sisters were protesting in the streets is because their mom cancelled the Cable TV leaving them without their favorite cartoons because the money was needed to cover the high cost of gas now over $4.00 a gallon. When asked about their mini - protest little Sadie said, "Gas prices are too high, "I just decided to come and protest so they'd go down."

These little girls protest symbolize the effects the high gas prices are having on middle, lower and working class families. Family budgets are being crippled because not only have energy prices gone through the roof, so has the cost of food. Why is this occurring?

The fault lays directly at the feet of a do nothing Democrat controlled Congress who continues to block all attempts for America to become energy independent. America is at the mercy of foreign oil and liberals in Congress and the Democrat party specifically refuses to lift the bans on tapping America’s vast energy resources. America needs to be developing nuclear energy, clean coal energy, natural gas, solar, wind, hydrogen and we need to tap our vast oil reserves.

America thrives when energy prices are low and middle, lower and working class families suffer when they are high. I would like to see these little girls lead a protest at the source of the problem and that is at the steps of the US Capital and at the doors of liberal Democrats.
