This just in from my pal Amy Worden in our Harrisburg bureau: Walmart, which recently wriggled out of a potentially costly class-action workplace discrimination case involving as many as 1.6 million women, has decided to spread the celebration to its gas pumps.
June 29, 2011 – Today, Walmart announces a 90-day Rollback at the pump to give customers a savings of 10 cents a gallon on all fuel, gas and diesel, at participating Murphy USA and Walmart gas stations. The discount applies to gas purchases made when using a reloadable Walmart gift card, reloadable Walmart MoneyCard® or Walmart credit card from June 29 through September 30, 2011.
Now that's what I call summer lovin! So the discount giant can continue to promote men at the expense of women, but Moms in minivans can save $1.50 every time they fill-up? What could be more all-American than that?
