Yes, there will be a $200K worth of free gas giveaway in Chicago on Thursday donated by Chicago businessman Willie Wilson.
Wilson stated that he hopes to alleviate some of the pain that Chicagoans are facing as a result of high fuel prices.
Beginning at 7 a.m. on March 17, participating gas stations will give away free petrol.
The giveaway will continue until the $200,000 is depleted.
“The soaring price of gas has caused a hardship for too many of our citizens. The average price of regular gas has gone well over $4 a gallon for the first time in nearly 14 years and is now up nearly 50 percent from last year.” Dr. Wilson said.
“The war in Ukraine, a ban on Russian oil, and high taxes are contributing to rising fuel prices,”
