Station drops gas below $3.00

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Several Hundred South Georgian drivers got an early Christmas Gift Thursday when Petro South Incorporated held their last Customer Appreciation Day of the year.     

The company slashed gas prices to say thanks to customers, and drivers waited in long lines to fill up their gas tanks.     

$2.89 for a gallon of unleaded gas is something these drivers couldn't pass up, and word spread fast about cheap gas.

A couple hundred people waited in long lines.  Prices were so low it even caused some ASU students to skip class.  

Chavius Jackson Senior ASU student said  "I'm a little late for class just getting this gas. Hopefully the teacher will understand."  

Jacobi Mackey ASU Junior Student told us, "I caught a good deal this morning. I save maybe $15 dollars. It was very convenient for me. "    

Petro South Incorporated had their Customer Appreciation Day today. The company slashed prices for two hours in Albany at the Petro on Radium Springs and at the Shell Station in Leesburg.  "I just paid $3.24 a gallon. So I'm feeling kind of bad about that," said Robert Calhoun.

The company does this often. Amanda Rose Marketing PetroSouth, Inc. said "At 350 of our stations, we're doing these events sporadically as a way to give back."  

Drivers were thankful as they prepare for the holidays next week.   Kenneth Mitchell  said "I could not pass this up not the way this thing loves gas.  

"The extra dollar or two, I saved can be used for something else," said Reginald Christian.

 If you missed out today there's always next time. Petro South Incorporated has three Customer Appreciation Days once a month.
