WRAL-FM Gives Away Free Gas

Posted April 15, 2005

— Some people started the weekend with a real break at the gas pump.

Hundreds of people received free gas Friday morning. Cars, trucks and SUVs lined up at three area stations for Free Gas Friday.

MIX 101.5 WRAL-FM teamed up with Han-Dee Hugo's for the giveaway.

The "Free Gas Friday" idea came from listeners' phone calls, venting their frustrations as gas prices continue to rise. MIX 101.5 WRAL-FM has held "Free Gas Friday" in the past, but never before with such an impact.

Area residents pulled away with $7,000 worth of gasoline.
