EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) — Busler’s Gas station on Diamond and St. Joe Avenue is offering gas for $1.99 when it is usually $2.55.

Busler Enterprises President Charles Wolfinger said he dropped the prices to help bring in customers during CountryMark’s “Operation Fueling Freedom” — which donates 50 cents of every gallon to the national guard.

“Going the extra mile,” Wolfinger told Eyewitness News. “We could have went along with the rest of them but we chose to go the extra mile for the National Guard as well as for the people who came in to support the National Guard. So, that’s why we did it. For our customers, they’re loyal customers.”

Members of the National Guard even pumped gas for customers.

The deal ended at 5 p.m. on Friday evening.​​​
