NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Middle Tennessee residents lined up for cheap gas in Antioch Saturday morning.
The first 200 cars in line at the Murphy Oil gas station on Hamilton Church Road were able to fill up for just seven cents per gallon.
It was a promotion by Common Cents Mobile to get attention for their seven cents a minute cell phone plans. Common Cents Mobile team members were on hand to pump the gas, wash windows and provide giveaways including Common Cents Mobile phones and service. Common Cents Mobile offers a simple, concise portfolio of 7-cent minutes that Round Down, not up, as well as 7-cent text messages and is powered by the Nationwide Sprint Network. Common Cents Mobile is available at Wal-Mart stores in select markets including the Nashville area.
The line was so long that some people didn't get a chance to take part in the promotion, but those that were able to fill up their tanks were excited.
"It's wonderful, SUV I drive way to Nashville everyday to work. I'm excited! This has been wonderful though," said driver Chanel Roland.
A car that typically cost more than $45 to fill up would have cost only $1.22
