Red Deer drivers clamour for surprise fuel discount
About 230 Red Deer motorists took advantage of deeply discounted gas prices at a downtown service station on Friday morning.
The Husky station at 4505 49th Ave. was selling gas at 75 cents off of its posted price, with regular fuel going for 39.9 cents a litre.
The promotion, which ran from 10 a.m. until noon, was sponsored by ATB Financial as part of its 75th anniversary celebrations. Three other Husky stations in each of Calgary and Edmonton also participated in the discounted fuel sales during the same period.
Glenn Kubish, director of media and story with ATB Financial, said the gasoline deal was one of a number of events the financial institution is involved in to mark its milestone anniversary.
“Instead of one big bash, we’re trying to do a whole bunch of things around the province.”
