In an effort to get people ‚ÄĒ figuratively and literally ‚ÄĒ pumped for Christ, the Main Place Christian Fellowship offered $1.67-a-gallon gasoline at a Tustin service station Saturday, 40 cents off the regular price.
The catch? There really wasn't one. Church members in matching yellow shirts handed out bottled water, wiped windows and passed out literature as motorists waited at the Shell station at Red Hill Avenue and El Camino Real.
They said the subsidized gas campaign is a way to spread the word while promoting their 500-plus-member church.
