Bargain Gas for Some New Jeep SUV Owners

Chrysler is refueling American with a promotion for gas discount. Buyers of certain models get card that allow them to buy gas for $2.99/gallon for three years. This now seems like a bargain. I recently drove by an arco station that i used to frequent in 1998-2000 and back then it was $.99/gallon. The other day it was $3.99.
The models included Dodge Caliber, Avenger, Charger, Chrysler Sebring, 300, Town and Country, Jeep Commander, Jeep Liberty, Jeep Compass. The Jeep Wrangler was not eligible for the promotion unfortunately.

Funny: 32 People can fit in a Jeep Wrangler!

At a car show in Poland a stunt by a local dealer set a record for the most people to fit in a Jeep Wrangler. They were able to cram 32 people inside the 2008 Wrangler Unlimited. The feat was recorded in the Poland version of the Guinness Book. I'm impressed and having a good laugh.

They have set up camp out in beautiful Moab Utah for enthusiasts to experience the latest models in the right environment.
