As gas stations continue to raise their prices, River City Bicycles is asking Portlanders, “When are they going to hit $4.00 a gallon?”.
If you think you can guess the exact date, the shop will hand over a brand new Specialized Globe commuter bike (retail value $410).
Gas prices hit a record-high in the Portland-Vancouver area today when the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded hit $3.56.
River City Bicycles co-owner Dave Guettler publicized the contest in the Willamette Week (see the ad below) and he says 140 people have entered so far.
The contest is based on the selling price of regular unleaded gas at the Shell gas station across the street from River City. The contest ends tomorrow, so get your gas price guesses in now. Send an email to jasonb[at]rivercitybicycles[dot]com.
