LAS VEGAS (KLAS)– Gasoline is expensive with prices at an all-time high but the Vegas Golden Knights and Smith’s grocery stores are trying to ease the burden.

The Golden Knights announced on Wednesday that the VGK Foundation and VGK Alumni Association would be partnering with Smith’s Food & Drug Stores to host another “Knight Up, Gas Up” event where they give away $40,000 in free gas starting Thursday morning.

Drivers started lining up around 2:30 a.m. to be among the first 800 vehicles to get $50 worth of free gas.

The event is open to all fans and will begins at 8 a.m. on Thursday exclusively at 9710 W Skye Canyon Park Drive in Las Vegas.

The price of gasoline, at this exclusive Smith’s store, will also be lowered by 20 cents all day on Thursday, June 16, and Friday, June 17.

Fans are limited to one visit and will be greeted by Chance and members of the VGK and Henderson Silver Knights cast, while Deryk Engelland will be in attendance as a representative from the VGK Alumni Association. Select players from the Golden Knights are also expected to attend the event on Thursday morning.
