And the word spread fast.

The Shell station on the Lynnway gave away free regular gasoline to anyone who wanted it for just over an hour as part of a gas rewards promotion with Stop and Shop.

It started at 7:30 a.m. and was scheduled to last 90 minutes, but the demand was so high, traffic backed up and state police had to end it about 30 minutes early.

WBZ-TV’s Sera Congi reports.

For drivers who were lucky enough to get in, there was a 15-gallon limit.

Some ended up with more than $50 of free gasoline.

Nearly 400 people were able to get the deal before the police shut it down.
