There was free gas at in Jennings Saturday afternoon. It was part of a church's way of giving back to the community. The gas giveaway was held at the Phillip 66 on Lewis and Clark Boulevard in Jennings.
It started at noon and was sponsored by Equation Church based in North County. Members say part of their mission is to meet the needs of the community in any way possible. They came up with the idea to help local residents who might otherwise have to make sacrifices to buy gas during these tough times.
The church gave away 3000 dollars worth of gas with each car getting 20 dollars.
"To help somebody with a gallon of gas or a full tank it can certainly help and we can certainly use it," said customer Danielle Hunter.
