Can you spot the irony in the rationale behind Missouri’s new tourism campaign? Via OzarkFirst.com:
(Jefferson City, MO) — Gas prices aren’t getting any cheaper- so Missouri Gov. Matt Blunt is suggesting you stay closer to home for your next vacation.
Blunt and his family have planned a three-day trip through the state, hoping to set an example with what he is calling a “Show-Me Tourism Tour.”
The Blunts are traveling in an RV through 12 state parks and historic sites – starting at the Dillar Mill historic site in Davisville and ending at the Lewis and Clark Trailhead Monument in Jefferson City.
