Cheap Gas Flows Through East Texas

It was a sight not seen around East Texas for many years. While hard to believe, there was gas selling for less than a dollar Saturday.

"The Bull" radio station gave away gas for just 99.3 cents a gallon. The promotion was meant to let people know where the country station is on the radio dial.

Even a half hour before the promotion began dozens of cars began lining up outside the "Stop a Minute" gas station in Gilmer. Promotions like this have been popular in the past and this time around was no exception.

"The Bull" originally planned to give out cheap gas to the first 200 cars but decided it was so popular they filled up 200 more. Radio station officials said they hope to do the same thing in other East Texas cities over the next few weeks.
