Taking a loss for the community: Gas station takes down price to $2.25 at the pump

A gas station located in North Carolina decided to support the struggling community and lowered the price at the pump considerably. They sold gas for $2.25 a gallon in a bid to offer some relief to the record highs.

What are the details?

As the price of gas continues to worry drivers, a gas station in Burnsville decided it was time to do their part for the community. The drivers living in the community could get gas at $2.25 a gallon. The special offer was available on March 16, from noon until 5 p.m. So many people found out and got on board with the initiative that they ran out of gas in no time.

The gas station owners shared with ABC 7 that they took this loss so they could help out other people during these difficult times.

Each customer was thankful for the amazing offer, and most of them said that it was a kind gesture, much appreciated by the whole Burnsville community.

Is the offer gone?

No, there is still a chance to get low-price gas. The gas station is expecting new deliveries on Friday. The owners have let the word out that they intend to drop the gas price a second time very soon.

"I think that's really great […] of them to do that for people around here […]. It's […] good of them," Caylie Vess, one of the lucky drivers at the gas station, said for the outlet.

Have you seen a similar initiative in your city? Do you think gas station owners should share the burden of high prices with drivers?
