East Haven (WTNH) _ It was a great deal while it lasted. For two hours today some lucky folks got gas for under a dollar a gallon.

Radio station WPLR and Forbes Premium Fuel teamed up to sell gas for $.99 a gallon, but only during a two-hour window from 6:00 - 8:00 a.m.

People literally slept in their cars the night before to be in line for this. Funny thing was - most of them were hummers, escalades, pick-ups... why these people wouldn't just buy a regular car instead of sleeping for hours on their steering wheel baffles me.

hey obviously think of it like the gamers thatwait for twelve hours to buy a game machine.I saw one of these sales were a local church was paying the difference but the cars were mixed and none waited over nite because they just posted the price in the morning without notice. Line probably a block long when I saw it.
