This beats most of the credit card games people play.
According to the US Energy Information Administration (EIA), the U.S. average retail price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline has increased twenty seven cents this month to $3.78 per gallon this week. This is 15 cents per gallon higher than it was last year at this time. To cover that 15 cent per gallon year over year increase, Wal-Mart is set to do something about it.
Wal-Mart has reinstated its “Great Gas Rollback” program providing customers savings on fuel purchases in three different ways. Customers using a Wal-Mart gift card will receive a 10 cent per gallon discount. Customers who use a Wal-Mart MoneyCard or Wal-Mart credit card will save 15 cents per gallon on their fuel purchases.
The Great Gas Rollback began yesterday and will continue through Christmas Eve. Gas will be discounted at more than 1,000 Murphy USA and Wal-Mart gas stations located at Wal-Mart Supercenters in participating states.
According to Wal-Mart documents, the company saved customers nearly $60 million with last year’s basic gas price rollback program. This year, they are providing an even larger discount which should provide savings far beyond that of last year’s totals.
The “Great Gas Rollback” program will be available in 20 following 48 contiguous states:
Arkansas, Michigan. Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, Missouri, Georgia, New Mexico, Idaho, North Carolina, Illinois, Ohio, Indiana, South Carolina, Iowa, Tennessee, Kentucky, Texas, Louisiana, Virginia.
I have another off-topic personal Wal-Mart story going up in a few minutes that could potentially save some even more $’s although it is nothing like this. Or maybe it is?
