HARTFORD —  A city church is giving away free gas Wednesday afternoon.

Mount Olive Church Ministries is holding their “Gas on God” event at two gas stations on Wednesday July 20.

The gas will be given away at 1 p.m. at the Valero station, on 215 Albany Avenue in Hartford; and starting at 4 p.m. at the Noble station on 3250 Main Street in Hartford.

The church said the gas will be offered on a first come, first served basis.

Gas prices have hit their lowest level in five years this summer, and that has lead to increased traffic on the roads, especially for the holiday weekends of July Fourth and Memorial Day.
