According to GasBuddy.com, Spokane has the lowest national average price for a gallon of gas at $1.75, but on Thursday, some lucky drivers got fuel for even cheaper.
KXLY 4?s Great Gas and Grocery Giveaway is back with new sponsors: Spoko Fuel, where they gave away gas for $1.49 on Thursday to kick off the event.
People showed up to the Airway Heights location in droves for the cheap gas on Thursday morning. Spoko Fuel didn't just offer a great deal on regular unleaded, but on diesel as well.
The gas pumps saw action from customers all morning long.
"A buck forty-nine? that is probably the cheapest you can find anywhere? said customer Bobby Dematteo. ?Back home it is like $1.80 right now, so it's pretty good."
Dematteo is visiting Spokane from the east coast.
"Seen it on TV this morning,? Dematteo said. ?We were at the hotel, at the casino, and were talking about the prices of gas, and we got to fuel up this rental car before we turn it back in to fly back out, and said ?lets go get some gas.?"
