Win a $50 Gas Card from Patch
Enter our gas card giveaway today!
Update 9:40 p.m. May 21, 2012 - This contest is now closed. Thanks for participating. You can still add your comments if you have some great gas or money-saving tips, but only comments entered by 5 p.m. Monday, May 21 counted as entries for the give-away. The winner has been notified via email.
Gas prices are slowly coming down, but it's still pricey to fill up the tank. Nationwide, the average gas price is about $3.72, according to the Daily Fuel Gauge Report. Regular unleaded gas in the Burke area can be $3.80 or more.
Patch feels your pain and we want to help — even if it’s just a little bit. So we’re giving away a $50 gas card in the hopes that we can make one lucky reader's Memorial Day weekend excursion less expensive.
Entering this contest is easy. All you have to do is post a comment below this article to tell us about one thing you’re doing differently to save money on gas (or what you're doing to save on other things so you can afford gas). There’s no need to write a lot. Just a sentence or two will do!
We’ll conduct a random drawing from among the comments entered by 5 p.m. on Monday, May 21.
In the meantime, if you're looking for the cheapest gas (and road conditions) in the Annandale area, check out the Burke Patch commute page.
Good luck, road warriors!
