As gas prices reach a national average of $4.252 per gallon–and in some areas reaching over $6 per gallon–the Republican National Committee is launching an initiative to register voters at gas stations.
The initiative began in the battleground state of Arizona with RNC volunteers and staff registering voters at gas stations in the Phoenix and Scottsdale area–where gas prices have soared to over $4.50 per gallon.

The RNC’s Arizona Communications Director Ben Petersen told Fox News that “Arizonans are frustrated with paying the record-high gas prices we’ve seen recently; this is an issue that affects almost every single Arizonan. There’s no doubt that everyone is feeling the pain at the pump, so a gas station right now may be the very best possible place for one of our volunteers to have a conversation with someone and get someone signed up to vote.”
