Church buys down gas to $1 per gallon

MARLOW, Okla_ How does gas for just a dollar a gallon sound? Residents in Marlow were filling up cheap Saturday morning.  

The Marlow First Baptist Church had their annual gas buy down Saturday, providing customers up to 20 gallons of gas for $1 a gallon.  

It took place at the Hop and Sack across the street from the church.

The line stretched two blocks but that wasn't stopping customers from waiting.  

"I got here at 7:30 this morning, and the first vehicle in line, I asked the guy when he got here and he said 8 o' clock last night," church pastor Joe Ligon said.

Pastor Ligon says it's just the church's way of helping out the community.  

This is the fifth year for the gas buy down.  

Last year, the church pumped more than 3,000 gallons of gas into 200 vehicles.

This year, they beat that number, selling more than 3,600 gallons.
