PINELLAS PARK (FOX 13) -

All morning long people waited in line outside of Murphy USA gas station along Gunn Highway for free gas.  The gas is courtesy of GTE Financial Credit Union.

Employees say this is a way to thank people and give back to the community during a time of need.

The free gas started flowing around 5:30 this morning and the giveaway stopped around 9 a.m.  GTE Finanical gave the gas to members and non-members of the credit union as part of International Credit Union Day.

They say they gave away about $8,000 in gas to about 300 cars.  Most people say they waited about an hour for the free tankful. And they said it was totally worth it.
