Three thousand dollars' worth of gas was given away for free on Saturday, thanks to a Huntsville church.

The Progressive Union Missionary Baptist Church held its first "Gas on God" giveaway this past weekend. The first 150 cars got their tanks filled up with $20 worth of gas, and cars started lining up hours before it even started.

One woman told WAAY 31 that the giveaway came at a perfect time since gas prices have been on the rise.

"I feel blessed, and it's a great benefit," Gwendolyn Toney said. "It's just awesome how they're willing to help everyone to get gas, because, you know, you have some people who's probably having a hard time financially and can't get gas."

Toney said it was wonderful that the church would help the community like this. The church aims to show the community that it's always there for everyone, and the pastor told WAAY 31 this is just the first of many events like it.
