BENTONVILLE, Ark., Aug. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — In the past month, gas
prices have gone up more than 25 cents increasing strain on consumers’ budgets
and worries as fall and winter holidays approach. Walmart is easing the pain at
the pump with the return of its Great Gas Rollback program, helping customers
save on their fuel purchases in three different ways.  Walmart customers
using a Walmart gift card will receive a 10 cent per gallon discount. Customers
who use a Walmart MoneyCard® or Walmart credit card will save 15 cents per
gallon on their fuel purchase.


The Great Gas Rollback will begin Aug. 31 and end Dec. 24.  Gas will be
discounted at more than 1,000 Murphy USA and Walmart gas stations located at
Walmart Supercenters in participating states.


“It’s a busy time for our customers.  They are sending their kids back
to school and planning for Labor Day travels, and the holidays are just around
the corner.  As gas prices get higher, these tasks get tougher,” said
Duncan Mac Naughton, chief merchandising and marketing officer for Walmart
U.S.  “We’re here to help.  Last year, we saved our customers nearly
$60 million with the gas rollback program.  This year, we’re excited to
provide an even bigger discount on fuel that will help them save more money when
they need it the most.”
