MILWAUKEE — A Walker's Point gas station is offering $0.99 gas for first responders and essential workers.

Walker's Point Mobil Plaza, located at 605 South 1st Street, is offering discounted regular grade gasoline for 24 hours.

The gas station said it will be offering the discounted gas from Friday at 10 a.m. to Saturday at 10 a.m.

“We wanted to do something special to show our appreciation and support to all the individuals that have been tirelessly working in various industries and, in many cases, putting their own health at risk during this COVID-19 pandemic,” said Mike Sanfelippo, owner of the Walker’s Point Mobil Plaza Gas Station, in a press release. “While most of Milwaukee’s residents are at home and not driving very much because of Governor Tony Evers’ “Safer at Home” Order, there are still many individuals that are driving on Milwaukee roadways going to work each and every day that could use a break,” added Sanfelippo.

The offer is available for anyone who requests it.
