Town in GOP-haven Kentucky definitely doesn’t turn to socialism to deal with high gas prices.

Kentucky, a land where Bill Clinton managed to carry the state, but a state that has been otherwise red since 1980.  Romney carried the state by 22.7% points in the last election.  You can bet their citizenry don’t want none of that Obama socialism.
