FOREST, Va. (WFXR) — It’s been 23 years since the national average was a dollar across the country, according to Fortune Magazine.
AAA reported that the average for regular unleaded gas on Tuesday, July 5 was sitting at $4.80 a gallon for the U.S. and $4.60 a gallon for Virginia. While some drivers are feeling the pain at the pump, one Forest gas station wants to help.
The Express Lane 76 gas station located at 12200 Lynchburg Salem Turnpike in Forest is offering unleaded gas at 76 cents per gallon. However, customers must use the pre-downloaded My 76 app on Wednesday, July 6 between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. This is part of the second annual Customer Appreciation Celebration.
Besides cheap gas, there will also be store specials, a 76 branded tent with a prize wheel, a raffle to win a Yeti Cooler, and sports inflatable activity. Those who show up can also hang out with the Lynchburg Hillcats baseball team mascot, Southpaw.
All proceeds will be donated to Lynchburg Bread.
