Chicago Businessman Willie Wilson is bringing his free gas giveaway to the suburbs, including six in the Village Free Press coverage area. 

Wilson is expanding his giveaway to $1 million a week after he gave away $200,000 worth of fuel at 10 different gas stations in Chicago. That giveaway, which started at 7 am., caused traffic jams. According to WGN 9 Chicago, the giveaway took about three hours before Wilson’s money was spent.

Next week’s giveaway will take place on Thursday, March 24, and will also start at 7 a.m., lasting until Wilson’s money is exhausted. Each participant gets up to $50 worth of gas. This time, 50 gas stations in Chicago and the suburbs will participate, including the following in the VFP service area:

  • Super Save, 101 W. Madison St., Maywood 
  • BP, 11201 W. Cermak Rd., Westchester
