A gallon of regular unleaded gasoline breached the $4 mark at some Spokane-area stations Sunday. That contributed to a new citywide record average price of $3.93, according to AAA.

Gas prices Monday averaged more than $4 in 12 states. Here’s the story from the Spokesman-Review.

I heard on the news that in some states people are pretending to run out of gas in order to get a free gallon of gas from the Department of Transportation Incident Response Vehicles that travel the freeways looking for disabled motorists. I checked with the Spokane Regional Transportation Management Center, which dispatches the Incident Response Vehicles in our area, and they said that happens occassionally, but it’s still pretty rare around here.

So here’s my question, would be worth your time to get one gallon of free gas?
