Spark Energy, a retail electric provider aiming to convert PECO customers, will offer gasoline for 10 cents a gallon to 100 drivers on Tuesday, March 29 at the Heilman Sunoco station at 710 Easton Road in Willow Grove.
Here's how the promo will work: First you figure out how much gas your vehicle will burn to get to and from Willow Grove. THEN you go to Spark's Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/SparkEnergyPA and click on "like." That will give you access to a coupon, which you will print out. Get in line, at the Ellis Road entrance, no earlier than 9:50 a.m. Tuesday. The cheap gas goes to the first 100 cars, and the promotion will shut off at noon.
The "10 cent" figure is supposedly a reminder that Spark's kilowatt-hour rate is 10 percent lower than PECO's.
