Drivers line up for $2.99 gas in KXLY Great Gas and Grocery Giveaway contest
KXLY kicked off its Great Gas and Grocery Giveaway bright and early Thursday morning at Divine's at 2nd and Lincoln in Spokane with a bang, by giving people the chance to buy gas at $2.99 a gallon.
Needless to say that created a bit of a busy morning down at Divine's as a number of people showed up for that reduced price gas and as a matter of fact, some said they made more than one trip.
"I was listening to Mark Peterson on KXLY and $2.99 is amazing so I filled up. This is my second car I filled up this morning," David Ainsley said.
Ainsley came by to fill up the first time when things were fairly slow at Divine's. Then things started picking up around 7 a.m., with so much traffic people were waiting for a while for their turn at the pump.
Eric Kramer said it was well worth the wait.
"Great! And it was payday so I finished my run and came right down. I'll be back with my other car too," he said.
Mickey Mead has a hard time remembering back when gas was this cheap.
"I was in working and the employees came in and said hey it's $2.99 over there, everybody better get their cars out there, I was very excited," she said.
