Rising gas prices are hitting drivers very hard in their pocketbooks. Even Rod Wave is in disbelief at the cost of a full tank of gas.
In response, Rod Wave plans to donate $25,000 worth of free gas to residents of his hometown of St. Petersburg, Florida next Saturday (April 9). In a video he posted to his Instagram story last Monday (March 28), 2020 XXL Freshman filmed himself being stunned at the cost of a full tank of gas he put in his Bentley vehicle. It seems to be around $100.
“Gas high as shit,” he ventilated. The “Nirvana” rapper then turned the camera on him and made an announcement.
“St. Petersburg, FL, St. Pete, 727 – April 9 free gas offer at the Sunoco on the 34th just before getting on the bridge. On April 9, I’m giving away $25,000 free gas. So the April 9 and 12 hours, stop by and get a free full tank,” he said.
The owners of the Sunoco station confirmed to the Tampa Bay Weather newspaper that the “Free Gas” event will actually take place next weekend. Additionally, St. Petersburg police spokesman Ken Knight told the newspaper on Saturday (April 2) that traffic officers will be on duty to handle large crowds that are expected to come to a halt. “We’ll be here as long as the event goes on,” Knight said. “It’s probably going to be a lot of people.”
It is unknown if Wave will appear at the event. The Florida rhymer is currently on tour in support of his latest album soulfly.
Tribute to Rod Wave for giving back to his community with free gas.
