Companies give drivers a little extra to be thankful for this holiday driving season

BOSTON – Nov 16, 2017 – GasBuddy, the only smartphone app connecting drivers with their Perfect Pit Stop, is teaming up with Gulf Oil, a leading distributor of motor fuels in the United States, to celebrate the start of the holiday driving season by giving away thousands of gallons of free gas to consumers in cities across the Northeast.

Gulf Oil and GasBuddy have come together to surprise drivers who have the free GasBuddy or Gulf Pay apps downloaded with up to $20 worth of fuel per vehicle at select Gulf Oil locations. The first event will be held at a Gulf station in the Greater Worcester Area in Massachusetts on Tuesday, Nov. 21, with New Haven, Conn. to follow on Tuesday, Nov. 28. Exact station locations will be revealed the morning of the events via the GasBuddy app and social media channels.

“With a record number of Americans hitting the road for the holidays, we are thrilled to work with GasBuddy to give motorists something extra to be thankful for prior to the biggest drive of the year,” said Nikki Fales, Director of Marketing for Gulf Oil. “Gulf is committed to helping our customers get to where they need to go quickly and smoothly year-round, which is why we encourage motorists to download the Gulf Pay app to streamline the fueling experience.”
