Reno, Nevada -

Dozens of people lined up at a Reno gas station Tuesday to buy gasoline for $1.84 a gallon as part of a political event.

The cheap gas was offered by the Gas Can Man, a group funded by a called PAC Morning in America, focusing on energy policy. The conservative group Americans for Prosperity also funded the event.

A spokesman for the Gas Can Man told KOLO-TV that the event was supposed to remind voters that gas prices are high.

Spokesman Michael Findlay says that gas was $1.84 a gallon in the month of President Barack Obama's inauguration.

The Las Vegas Sun reports cars were lined up around the block to fill their tanks.
