For hours today people did their best to walk a fine line between an empty wallet and an empty gas tank.
Celebrating the 100th Kroger Fuel Center, the company decided to make a splash by offering gas at one dollar a gallon.
The promotion lasted from 8 to 10am but people were parked and waiting at least three hours before that.
The turnout was no surprise and Kroger did their best to be ready. Police were on hand to help direct traffic.
The line stretched out onto Man O' War.
And once they had filled up, the line to leave the parking lot was forty five minutes or so to get back on Richmond Road
