Wal-Mart Offers Dime-A-Gallon Gas Discount In 18 States
USATODAY.COM - Just in time for the Fourth of July driving weekend, Wal-Mart is rolling back prices -- on gasoline. The giant retailer is offering 10 cents off a gallon at Wal-Mart and Murphy USA stations when purchases are made with a reloadable Wal-Mart gift card, MoneyCard or a Wal-Mart credit card.
The deal is good through Sept. 30 -- so you've got all summer to take advantage of it. But it's limited to 18 states.While it includes Texas and Michigan, it is missing some biggies like California, New York, New Jersey and Florida.
Perhaps most amazing, Wal-Mart says that there are no restrictions, including no requirement for store purchases in order to get gas discounts at Wal-Mart stations. See full details and a complete list of stations by clicking here.
Obviously, the program appears aimed at spurring regular use of Wal-Mart's various money cards, but you have to give the retailer credit for knowing the razor-sharp feelings that Americans have about gas prices -- and the lengths they will go to find the lowest prices for precious petrol.
"Our customers have told us that high gas prices are a top budget concern, nearly as large an expense to their households as food and groceries," said Stephen Quinn, chief marketing officer. "We listen to our customers and because we know they are feeling squeezed by gas prices, we're implementing this gas (price) rollback to help them save, especially during high travel summer months."
States with participating gas stations are:
