CHICAGO — Cars started lining up early Thursday — despite officials saying not to — to get free fuel courtesy of Chicago millionaire Willie Wilson for his second round of a gas giveaway.

On Thursday, March 24 beginning at 7 a.m., Chicagoans and suburban residents had the chance to get free fuel at nearly 50 gas stations throughout the area. The same rule applies as before — $50 per person until the money runs out.

However, unlike last time, vehicles were not allowed to line up overnight. Drivers were allowed to get their place in line starting at 6:30 a.m. — but that rule didn’t stop some Chicagoans from lining up early anyway.

Cars started getting in line around 5:30 a.m. in Gage Park near 52nd Street and Western Avenue. A line was also seen at Irving Park Road and Western Avenue.

Each gas station will allow 400 cars between 7 a.m. to around 10:30 a.m. to get their free gas. Each driver that shows up will get a sticker that indicates a position in line. The sticker is required to get free fuel.

There will be only one entrance and one exit at each gas station, so there is no need to worry about people cutting the lines.

Following the traffic debacle, Wilson teamed up with the Chicago Police Department, the Office of Emergency Management and suburban officials to make sure things go smoother.

And the efforts seemed to have worked in some areas. Things were moving smoothly at the BP on Irving and Western as cars got their free fuel and kept moving.

Wilson was at a gas station in Cicero Thursday morning and said there is an immense need for the free gas. He said he just might have to do a third giveaway if fuel prices keep increasing.
