Mount Vernon residents to get a huge break on gas prices this weekend

A huge break on gas prices is coming to drivers in Mount Vernon.
Mayor Shawyn Patterson-Howard is launching the "Blasting into Summer Savings" pilot event Saturday, July 3. 
It will offer what is believed to be the lowest-priced gas in the state.
Two-hundred passenger cars will be able to fill up their tanks.
Drivers need to be from Mount Vernon - and diesel fuel will not be available. 
The event runs from 1:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Pre-registration begins at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday morning.
