Miami Drivers Get Gas Discount From Auto Insurance Co.

Money in a gasoline containerAmid tough economic times, one auto insurance company has tried to help consumers with a little bit of relief at the pump.

Infinity Insurance offered Miami drivers gas for only $1.49/gal on Aug. 4 at a Chevron gas station in the Sunshine State. The car insurance company said that the cheap-gas promotion was their way of saying “much gusto,” or “nice to meet you,” to the community.

The gas deal saved drivers a bundle. National gas prices are currently averaging $2.77 a gallon, according to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report.

“By offering gasoline for $1.49 a gallon, we demonstrate our commitment to provide discounted car insurance to local drivers,” Infinity Insurance spokesperson Geraldine Toledo said. “Given our changing economic climate, we’re fortunate to continue to serve our customers with the same stability and trust as always.”

Given the high prices some pay for auto insurance, the discounts offered through insurance companies can be helpful. Floridians have had to pay some of the steepest prices for car insurance of any state in the nation. The National Association of Insurance Commissioners estimated that the state’s average auto insurance expenditure in 2007 was $1,043.

Infinity Insurance says that the gas promotion isn’t the end of their savings offerings. Later this year, they will give away more than $100,000 in products and services to Miami residents.
