It sounded enticing, but interest in a free gas giveaway at a Peterborough, Ont., church Sunday was nearly running on empty.
Christian Victory Church was offering $20 gift cards for gasoline to the first 50 visitors at its Sunday morning service who weren’t already part of the congregation.
Only six people showed up for their free gas.
The church wanted to help people on tight budgets and draw interest in the church.
The website ontariogasprices.com reported the provincial average on Sunday morning for a litre of gas was under 98 cents.
