Digital Credit Union Saves Surprised Drivers Bucks at the Pump
Digital Federal Credit Union surprised Worcester, Mass., drivers Wednesday by rolling back the price at the gas pump to 2005’s low $1.99 per gallon.
According to the $3.8 billion Marlborough, Mass., credit union, the move was designed to demonstrate to the community how much DCU can save members.
Slated to run for six hours from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Pleasant & Park Gulf Gas Station, the promotion also benefited the American Red Cross Disaster Relief efforts.
For every car that filled up, DCU said it would donate $1.99 to the Red Cross to help families affected by the tornadoes that hit the state a month ago.
DCU conducted a similar promotion in Worcester in July 2008, pumping 7,429 gallons of discounted gas for nearly 800 happy drivers from around the area, representing a savings of more than $14,000 for consumers at the time.
