NASHUA, N.H. – Hundreds of motorists lined up outside the Briad St. Gulf Station Wednesday morning to take advantage of $1.99 a gallon gas, courtesy of Digital FCU.

The credit union, based in nearby Marlborough, Mass., was celebrating the year 2005 when it opened its first Nashua branch – and when gas was just $1.99.

By 6 a.m., a line of cars began forming on side streets near the station. Police were on hand to direct traffic and create an orderly possession through the station’s eight pumps. The charity promotion began at 7 a.m.

The $2 billion credit union hoped to serve 1,000 cars. DCU employees were on hand to pump gas and wipe windshields of participating vehicles.

The credit union paid the station the difference between the promotional cost and the pump price of $3.83 per gallon. Also, DCU donated $1.99 per car to purchase school supplies for needy children in the Nashua Goes Back to School program.
