Tanks-Giving: There’s Free Gas in Massachusetts and Maine Needs in
I don't know about you, but I always dread when my gas tank goes below half a tank. Are prices going to be higher than they were the last time I filled up my tank? Sometimes I even try to wait longer to fill my tank in hopes that gas prices drop.
Over the past couple of years, we have seen gas prices skyrocket. It's not news that we are all waiting for gas prices to go back down, so we don't stress about needing to get some gas and how much it is actually going to cost us.
Yes, gas prices are still high, but they always seem to get worse around any holiday.
Well, when it comes to Thanksgiving, people that live in or near Norwood, MA, do not need to really worry about spending money if they need to fill up their tanks.
Ernie Boch Jr., former CEO of Boch Enterprises and the current CEO of Subaru of New England, likes to give back around Thanksgiving. On the day before Thanksgiving, Ernie Boch Jr. gifts 50,000 gallons of free gas in Norwood, MA, with what he calls "Tanks-giving."
Ernie Boch Jr. took to both Twitter and Facebook today to share exactly where individuals can go fill up their gas tanks for free. While supplies last, individuals would be able to put their wallets away and grab some free gas at Rojo Irving Gas Station on Route 1.
Now, I get it. Ernie Boch Jr.'s dealerships primarily are in Norwood, MA, but it would be nice to share the wealth. That each year he chooses a different place in New England to host Tanks-giving or host one in each New England state annually.
We have Irving gas stations all over Maine, and I am sure that I am not the only person that would love to see this happen in Maine. I mean come on, who doesn't love some free gas, especially around a holiday when most of us will be traveling?
According to Mass Live, there is a $75 limit on free gas, but I can tell you now, that would defiantly fill up my tank and then some.
Mass Live writes that this is the second time this year that Ernie Boch Jr. has given out free gas. The first time was on April 1st when he was giving out 7,000 gallons of free gas, and some people ended up waiting over nine hours overnight to take advantage of the deal.
All in all, this is amazing for anyone traveling to or living in Massachusetts, however, it would be great to see it in Maine as well.
