Cash for Kindness: Cash for Gas

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

When it comes to the cost of gas these days, we could all use a little extra cash to fill up our tank. We here at WSFA 12 News thought that would be a good idea, so we did a different take on Cash for Kindness and gave people cash for gas.

We've seen it rise and we've all felt the impact, and just about everyone has an opinion about the rising cost of gasoline.

"It' ridiculous," said one.

"I think the gas prices are really, really overly high right now," said another.

"I'm shocked at how many times I have to keep coming to the gas station," lamented a third.

But, this story isn't about the pain at the pumps. It's about the act of giving away some cash to those struggling to get around. We pulled over at the Entec on Ann street to give four people $30 each. 

Vernlisa Bruce  told us about two major milestones in her life and how a little extra money could go a long way. "I only did five dollars today. I tried to use a debit card and it wouldn't work so, I  paid cash.  It's our anniversary and my birthday and I'm thinking I've got to get this to work," she explained.

We also made Mark Powell's day. "Oh lord!" he exclaimed. He pumped only five dollars because payday isn't until Friday.

Others got the cash, but we won't forget Kevin Murray. He didn't have much time to talk.  He was on his way to pick up his children from school.  He's has four children and was most grateful for our kindness. "I'm going to use it to take care of my family. I appreciate it very much. It's a blessing from the Lord," Murray said.

We plan to surprise drivers at another gas station soon. Stay tuned!
