It’s no secret that gas prices have been soaring all over the country, with the average price for a gallon of unleaded being $6.38.
This has been really hard for people, especially those with long commutes to work.
One Texas man, who is now living in California, is doing everything he can to help ease this burden for people by offering to fill their gas tanks for free.
Ray Walter showed up to the Rancho Margarita Shell station with a mission of making people’s day.
“We’re just obviously one family. We can only do so much but we want to help those that we can help,” Walter said.
One woman was in awe when Walter paid $100 to fill up her tank completely.
Another man, Bob Morgan, had run out of gas two days in a row last week, causing his car to stall, so Walter was more than happy to help him out.
“If someone could extend their help for gasoline, it’s just like paying a bill or putting food on the table at the same time,” said Wendall Frazier, another man that Walter helped.
Walter also posted on Facebook, offering to fill up the tanks of those who are strained by the sky-high gas prices.
On the first day, after just a few hours, Walter had paid to fill up five tanks, which came to nearly $500.
