The campaign says the spot will air on cable and in Colorado, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Ohio, Pennsylvania, (northern) Virginia, and Wisconsin.
"Gas prices - $4, $5, no end in sight, because some in Washington are still saying no to drilling in America," an announcer says as the spot opens on a solitary gas pump.
"No to independence from foreign oil," the announcer continues. "Who can you thank for rising prices at the pump?"
At this point, a photo of Obama appears onscreen, and chants of "Obama, Obama" can be heard in the background.
"One man knows we must now drill more in America and rescue our family budgets," the announcer adds, as video of McCain appears onscreen.
The spot closes with another, more subtle shot at the presumptive Democratic nominee: "Don't hope for more energy, vote for it. McCain."
