Missed this earlier, but it’s worth a mention. U.S. Congressman Jack Kingston visited Baxley on Wednesday, Aug. 20. Kingston was the guest speaker at the Baxley-Appling County Chamber of Commerce’s Quarterly Luncheon. He was speaking about the gasoline supply and price. He made the usual talking points (ANWR, offshore drilling, etc.), but then also went onto say more.
He also shared ideas about how the government and citizens could help to conserve and reduce the demand for oil. Ideas include reducing the speed limit, eliminating drive-through windows, possibly eliminating Saturday postal delivery, purchasing more energy efficient vehicles, etc.
Yeah. Be sure to check your tire pressure, too, guy. According to the article, Kingston has an energy survey he is asking citizens to fill out and mail back to him. If you would like more information about this survey, please call his office at 202-225-5831 or visit his website at kingston.house.gov.
