Free Gas for Life? 76® Is Giving Away Fuel to Bay Area Motorists

Timely Promotion as California Prices Top $4 a Gallon

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - June 13, 2008) - The 76® gasoline brand is giving away "gas for life" in an extraordinary summer promotion that gives Bay Area drivers a chance to win thousands of gallons of free fuel.

Drivers who fill up with 10 gallons or more of 76 gasoline could "Win Gas for Life" -- one of more than 4,000 prizes from 76, including free gas for a year and gas certificates worth $10 each. The unique promotion runs through July 31.

"We want Bay Area drivers to experience the benefits of using 76 gasoline, which can help maximize mileage and reduce emissions," says Kathleen Post, 76 promotions director for ConocoPhillips Company. "One way to help drivers 'get the spirit' of 76 is to give away free gas and a chance at never having to buy gas again."

In addition, two ClearChannel Bay Area radio stations, KIOI-FM (101.3) and KUFX-FM (98.5), are giving away thousands of dollars worth of fuel to support the 76 "Win Gas for Life" promotion.

During four special "Free Gas Fridays" slated for June and July, both 98.5 FM and 101.3 FM will announce designated 76 stations, where the first 98 to 101 drivers visiting could get 10 gallons of free gasoline. Free Gas Fridays will be announced the morning of June 13 and July 11 for Star 101.3, and June 20 and 27 for KUFX 98.5. Radio station personalities will host the Free Gas Fridays at the designated 76 stations.

"Win Gas for Life" contest rules are available at the 280 Bay Area 76 stations, or online at www.76.com.
