Free Gas Lottery

Gas stations give away free gas to random people
(+1, -1)

Today, I saw a radio station giving away free gas at a local gas station. The line for gas was long, and it caused a traffic jam. Gas stations should give free gas to a random person every once in a while. For example, a gas station that does this promotion may give free gas to one person out of 1000 people. They will attract more business because people will want to fill gas there if there's a possibility of it being free. Maybe the price could be bumped up by a few pennies per gallon to pay for the "free" gas.

I wasn't really looking for this, but now I'll probably use it. [Zimmy, Aug 09 2005]


       bumped up by 10 cents for 1 in 200. If they're driving a Scion that costs $20 to fill up.   

       A 1 cent increase for 1 in 2000 odds might work, though.

       Hell no! I'm already paying $2.87 per gallon as it is and prices are steadily going up without bumping it up for "free" gas.

       $2.87 for premium?
Zimmy, Aug 09 2005

       Premium's 91, right? Yeah, $2.87.

       This is already baked. Sort of. There is a gas station in Amarillo that gives a "Free fill up" (but only up to 10 gallons for free) to every 100th person that buys a premium car wash for $8 (US)
