Packing Heat Saves at the Pump

Packing heat will save you money at the pump when you fill up at one Minnesota gas station.

Permit holders gassing up at the Shell station in Sauk Rapids are receiving ten cents off per gallon if they show proof of their permit every day after 7 PM.

Owner Frank Schwagel says he put the policy in place after a series of robberies hoping thieves will “think twice” about the types of customers inside the store.

Schwagel says the public is very supportive of this discount, saying, “people are coming in and calling from all over the country to express their support. I have had a few calls as I am writing this to you.”

Schwagel says the promotion will go on “indefinitely.”
