Thomasville - It took less than an hour to give it all away. The gas give-away took place at the Thomasville travel center and was part of a promotion by Gulf 104.1 FM out of Tallahassee.

Patrons received a voucher for $10.00 worth of gas each, starting at 8:00 AM. By 8:45 AM the gas was gone. Clerk Kay Duncan says, "They loved it, they really like it, and it went so fast. It lasted maybe 45 minutes and it was over. Some couldn't believe that we was really giving it away, you know."

The free gas was a welcome to Thomasville drivers who are now paying $1.89 for regular gasoline, and up to $2.09 for premium.
