Charlotte Observer: Gas for $1.22? For 1 hour
Edited on Thu Aug-03-06 12:42 PM by Rose Siding
Benjy Dunn's Filling station, at 103 West Main Street in Biscoe, will be selling gas for $1.22 a gallon between noon and 1 p.m. today. Biscoe is in Montgomery County, east of Charlotte.

The whole idea is the brainchild of Larry Kissell, a Democrat running for Congress in the 8th District against four-time incumbent Republican Robin Hayes of Concord. Benjy Dunn's Filling Station is across the street from Kissell's campaign headquarters.

Kissell is sponsoring the promotion to complain that Hayes is a supporter of the major oil companies. The price of gas between noon and 1 p.m. is the same that it cost when Hayes was elected to his first term in 1998, Kissell says.
