I still thank god I got the slow pump though.
Drivers pulling into the Citgo are about to meet Don Reed1, a man they’ll never forget.
-Need some gas?
-Yes sir.
-You’re a lucky man. You are the last free customer. God bless you. Merry Christmas. Come up right here.
For about an hour, he pumped around 80 cars full of free gas.
-They think it's a gimmick2, sometimes.
And Reed asks for nothing in return.
-Merry Christmas. Good to see you. God bless you. Pass. Pass it on to somebody else.
Dollar by dollar, it only adds to about 20 bucks3 apiece, but the smiles keep coming.
-See you. Nice holiday.
-Well, you, too.
-Thank you.
-Thank you. Merry Christmas.
-You get lucky, sir.
-What do you have to say to this guy?
-God bless him. Thank you. Merry Christmas. This is a blessing4.
It’s not just customers giving thanks.
-Thank you, man. Merry Christmas. 
Reed gets something out of it too.
-I receive a lot more than I give on this. I know a couple of people it really may have saved their day. Maybe a lot of them it didn’t but… if there is one or two people, then it’s been worth it.
So, why does he do it? Even he doesn’t know.
-I don’t know why. I just, it just…something told me to do it. A lot of people probably couldn't afford the gas and so it'll get them through the week. I’m very blessed with a family, employees5, customers, we just pass it along.
-He said I want to give away gas. At first I thought he was just joking.
When he asked the Citgo owner if he could do it last year, she didn’t believe it. But then she learned6 a valuable lesson.
-And after that, my thinking was changed so much. If you want to do good, then do it.
If it’s good, just do it. It’s a lesson eighty more people learned after just stopping for gas.
- All right, Merry Christmas.
- Merry Christmas.
- Merry Christmas to you. Pass along.
