Earl Humphreys, owner of Lawn Boyz off Volunteer Pkwy. in Bristol is organizing a gas price protest at his business. On Monday, May 5, Humphreys, along with other lawn care companies, 20 trucking companies who plan to park their trucks in protest, and concerned citizens will be staging a Gas Price Protest.

Humphreys is just one of many whose business has suffered due to increasing gas prices, and plans to provide a voice for those of us being “held over a barrel.”

Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey has cleared his schedule to attend the event.

I would be there, but it would take quite a bit of gas to drive from Jonesborough to Bristol and back, so that kind of defeats the purpose. You can bet I’ll be there in spirit!
