Indiana State Treasurer Richard Mourdock, running for U.S. Senate against six-term incumbent Dick Lugar, has begun airing television and radio ads that take his opponent to task over his call to raise gas prices by a dollar a gallon.

“Hoosiers are feeling the real financial burden of ever increasing gas prices in Indiana, which in some parts of our state are over $4 a gallon,” the ad, focusing on Lugar’s support for increasing the federal gas tax as a way to force consumers to use less imported oil, says.

Story continues below video.



“Like Obama, Lugar believes the federal government’s direct intervention, in this case through higher taxes, is the solution to America’s problems. Such a tax increase is misguided and would only harm struggling Hoosier families and economy,” the add, airing in advance of the Republican Primary on May 8th, continues.

“If we truly want to lower fuel prices, then we need to rollback government regulations and other impediments so our country can develop and use more of its natural resources,” stated Treasurer Mourdock, who holds a Master’s Degree in geology and spent 30 years in the Hoosier energy business prior to being elected state treasurer.
