Gas Station In Fremont Offers Free Gas To Furloughed Workers
A gas station owner in my hometown of Fremont is giving away free gas to federal workers who live in Fremont. Ray Olyaie is the owner of the Valero at 4004 Mowry in Fremont, and he said he wanted to help his community during the current government shutdown. Ray said he was inspired to help out after he overheard a woman say, "I can't go to work because I don't have the money for gas." Ray said that he is going to give away $20,000 in gas and possibly more depending on how long the shutdown lasts.
