Rush for Free Gas in East Yakima


YAKIMA, Wash. -- Drivers dashed to East Yakima Friday morning after a radio station announced a free gas giveaway.

At 6:50 a.m., "My 99.3 FM" announced the first 99 cars to the parking lot of the old "Yakimex" would receive $30 in free gas. The parking lot was packed in less than ten minutes.

"It's great considering I drove from Naches and actually made it on time", said Crystal Blubaugh.

The lucky, speedy 99 winners have until Sunday to claim their free gas at the AM-PM on the corner of 6th Avenue and Yakima Avenue.
