I was going to post this in the news forum but saw that wasn't an option for me. Florida has done this in the past with different twists on it. I like the free voucher with $5 worth of Lotto tickets this year.

 

Reported on Bay News 9, Thursday, May 17, 2012...

TALLAHASSEE -- 

Starting next week, folks who play the Florida Lotto will have the chance to win gas for life.

The state will conduct weekly drawings from May 23 to July 11 for free gas promotions. Fifty players will win gas for a month, five players will win gas for a year, and one person will win "gas for life." The grand prize will come in the form of either an annual allottment of $3,600 in gas cards, or a cash option of $72,000, less taxes.

In order to enter the promotion, entrants must buy at least $5 in Florida Lotto tickets. They will then get a voucher to enter the giveaway.

Some players could also win $50 instantly.

    I got a bunch of dogs that all gather around me wherever I sit.

    They're all gathered around me here at my desk now and I can't hardly move cuz they're all up against me trying to be in contact with me.

    I think one or two of 'em might have won that "Gas for Life".

    It's the same thing every dam night.

    Good Lord, it's like something died in here!

          That's where the cash payout comes in. For $72k I could buy a new Leaf, install the charging station, and put some panels on the roof. That would be how I'd do it if I won.

              Thank you, weshar75, true story though, it'll make your sinuses burn and your eyes water.

              Then when I yell at 'em, they all look up and act like they don't know what I'm talkin' about.

              Yeah, right.

                I was just going back over the forum rules and realized this was prohibited. Sorry for the infraction. I'll submit this on the News Story Suggestion Form.
