                                        Weekend in a few minutes.  Ashley: We're continuing to monitor gas prices once they're sent on board.  The national average is now $4.95.  The average is five dollars a gallon in Pennsylvania and Pittsburgh.  You can pay as much as you paid in January of last year at a gas station in Westmoreland County.  It's selling gas for $2.38 per gallon but only for an hour if any.  Joining us live now from BP Gas Station at JIM Leachburg Road.  Jim, what are you watching?  Jim: I can tell you there are no tickets left.  It's Willy Wonka's equivalent of today's Golden Ticket.  You can see that around 8:00 this morning all the cars are filling up.  They told me within an hour or so that all these tickets were claimed.  As far as traffic is concerned, it has got a pretty good back up so far.  Use that shopping plaza to get everyone in line before it starts.  People started half an hour ago and the event is being put on by the Political Odyssey group - the junkie chose $2.38 because it was when President Biden took office.  I had a chance to speak to the manager of the store, who told me that when contacted about it, he said it was a good opportunity to just give back.  We asked someone to do the whole thing that they needed it.  Gas prices are constantly on the rise, and so this little break goes a long way for them.  We saw people from Kittan coming here from far away, UP from the city area, stuff like that.  I think it'll be about an hour or so, with traffic open up a bit.  We will keep you posted as

                On Wednesday, the gas line at BP in Lower Burel is set to be long.  The gas station, located in the 3200 block of Litchburg Road, is partnering with political group Americans to offer gas for one day at $2.38 a gallon.  $2.38 was the national average for gas in mid-January 2021, the group said.  As of Wednesday, the average cost of gas in the state of Pennsylvania was $5.00.  The national average is $4.95.  At Lower Burrell station, the price of gas was $5.09 on Tuesday.  According to a news release from the organizers, the event is part of AFP's "True Cost of Washington" campaign, which highlights rising costs for Pennsylvania and their businesses.  AFP says Pennsylvanians spent an additional $500-600 in April amid rising inflation.  "We may never see these prices again."  Tammy Bartley is the manager of BP.  She tells us that when the group approached her about the idea, it was easy to say yes." I feel like we've done something to help them, especially older people working on a budget, Or people who don't have a job right now," Bartley said.  "E just figured it was time to do something."  "What's happening is that Americans are having to choose between their kids and Americans, between gas and food, or gas and vacations, or gas and dance lessons or drum lessons or soccer or hockey. Coalition director Mary Cirucci said, “No need to make those choices.” Americans for Prosperity were at a BP station at 11 a.m. The gas price for the first 150 vehicles was $2.38 a gallon—only 87 octane, no RVs, no gas cans. It lasted two hours or until 1,500 gallons were used up. The group is paying the difference to the gas station. That bill would be just over $4,000. "We wish we could do this for everyone , but apparently this is impossible.  So the big picture is to really draw attention to inflation, and add policies that are driving inflation to people, and then really, effect change in Washington, DC," Sirucci said.
