Fixed Price Gas Savings Program Allows Consumers To Save Money by Buying
Tomorrow's Gas at Today's Prices

MIAMI, June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Starting today, Americans concerned with
rising gas prices can seek relief with the launch of MyGallons, a fixed price
gas savings program that allows people to pre-purchase gas at today's prices.
The program is simple.  After registering on the website at
and receiving a MyGallons Card, members will be able to pay the current price
for gas to be stored in their accounts as a credit balance in gallons.
Members can then use their secure MyGallons Card to fill their tank at over
95% of the nation's gas stations.  The MyGallons Card is swiped right at the
pump just like a debit card.
    "By allowing consumers to pay for quantities of gas at current prices,
MyGallons provides them with a solution to cope with gasoline price
increases," said Steven Verona, Founder and CEO of MyGallons. "While everyone
seems to want to point fingers and place blame for the staggering rise in gas
prices, I am proud to say MyGallons is actually doing something to help the
consumer save money."
    MyGallons offers two annual membership options.  The auto-refill plan
costs $29.95, while the self-replenishment plan costs $39.95.  A nominal fee
will be assessed at the time of account replenishment. Members may access
their account via the website to check their savings,
transaction history, balance in gallons, and pay for additional gas to add to
their account. Customers can be alerted via email and/or text message when
their balances are nearing zero, so they may add additional gallons to their
    A member's price per gallon at the time of purchase is based upon the
average gas price in the zip code of their account's billing address.  For
example, if a customer pre-purchases fuel for $4.00 per gallon and redeems 6
months later when gas prices have risen to $5.00 a gallon, the consumer saves
$1.00 per gallon.  If analysts' predictions of much higher prices prove
correct, the average American driver will experience significant savings with
    In addition to significant savings, MyGallons offers its members
convenience and freedom as the gas redemption program uses the Voyager fleet
network, owned by US Bank, which is accepted at over 95% of gas stations
