HELPING HAND

Arizona gas station owners cut prices in an effort to ‘help our customers’

OWNERS of a Phoenix gas station named C K Food Mart have lowered gas prices to help drivers impacted by surging fuel costs.

The gas station reduced its unleaded gas per gallon cost to $4.99, which is around 70 cents per gallon cheaper than the city’s average.

Most cars have an average gas tank size of 12 gallons, with a smaller percentage of vehicles holding a 16-gallon tank.

When we apply C K Food Mart gas station’s average fuel discount of 70 cents, you’ll see that the gas station is saving drivers up to $12 during a fill-up, Newsweek reports.

C K Food Mart is run by a married couple named Jaswinder Singh and Ramandeep Kaur.

The couple has been lowering gas prices by roughly 70 cents per gallon from the county’s average for the last four months, azcentral reports.

Singh said: "We are trying to help our customers, our neighborhood, our community so they can save some money so they can spend that money on something else, like food, lunch, dinner," Fox reports.

Singh and Kaur are practicing Sikhs who view their community’s reactions to the discount as blessings.

Singh said the positive reception the station has received is: “more important than money. Money we can make later. Right now, we know that the situation is pretty tight, and people need to save money,”

Singh and Kaur only take debit and cash payments at their Phoenix gas station located on the corner of 20th Street and Osborn Road.
