GasBuddy.com, the retail gas price tracker supported by millions of volunteer price spotters across the U.S. and Canada, has started giving away $100 in free gas, as it will do every single day in 2014. The first winner of the new $100 daily prize was a driver from Aurora, Ill.
"It simply makes it much sweeter of a deal for the hardworking group of spotters that have been behind so much of GasBuddy's success," said Jason Toews, co-founder of GasBuddy.com, "We want to reward the GasBuddy community for their hard work, effort and dedication in our mission: saving motorists money at the pump."

Since 2007, GasBuddy had given away $250 in free gas every week to one lucky GasBuddy member. To date, more than $66,000 worth of free gas has been handed out as a way of saying "Thank you."
Last year, GasBuddy gave away $13,000 in free gasoline, but will boost that number nearly three-fold in 2014 to more than $35,000 by changing its giveaway to a daily $100 gas card, increasing the number of winners each year from 52 to 365.
Anyone 18 or older who is a GasBuddy member may be eligible for the GasBuddy weekly gas card giveaways.
