According to reports, a Georgia gas station lost nearly $12,000 by selling discounted gas.
On Monday, the A to Z Food Mart in Hinesville, Georgia sold gas for less than $2 a gallon, which is less than half the average price of gas in the state.
There were people wrapping the block, waiting for hours, just for their chance to fill up at a low cost.
"Everyone’s wallet’s taking a hit right now in 2022, so the least we can do as a locally, independently owned convenient store is give back for the community," said gas station owner Ravi Patel.
Fox News 13 reports:
The sale of gas lasted for just three hours. In that time, Patel estimated he lost around $12,000.
But Patel says it's worth the price to see smiles on his customers' faces.
According to AAA, the average price of a gallon of unleaded gas in Georgia is $4.26 - around half a dollar less than the national average of $4.752 a gallon.
Georgia's price is around two cents less than Wednesday, 10 cents less than a week ago, seven cents less than a month ago, and around $1.30 more than the same time in 2021.
The most expensive gas in the state is in Atlanta, Hinesville-Fort Stewart, and Athens. Drivers can find the cheapest gas in Warner Robins, Albany, and Valdosta.
That's a better man than me! During a time of inflation and uncertainty, it would be extremely risky to lose so much revenue. Good on him for being a good Samaritan in the community.
