Kentucky Man Saddled Up To Protest High Gas Prices

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - A man who lives in western Kentucky has saddled up in protest of high gasoline prices.

Allan Peerce owns his own sign-making company in Leitchfield, so his commute may not be like many people's, but he makes it via Hitman. That's his Tennessee walking horse.

Peerce says he's trying to awaken people to take action over costly gasoline, urging them to get off their high horse and get on a real horse.

Peerce says he and Hitman will mosey on over to the Leitchfield (LITCH'-field) City Hall and set up camp on the lawn if diesel prices hit $4.25 a gallon.
