Gas Station Offers Free Fuel with HIV Tests 

Seriously. It’s combo customer-appreciation day and HIV-mobile-testing event -- the result of an unlikely partnership between a gas station owner and the Richmond City Health District. There’s free food, drinks and an inflatable bounce house. But most importantly, the first 100 people to get tested for HIV leave with a $5 gas card.

It’s Saturday between 2 and 6 p.m. at the Exxon Food Mart at 2607 Chamberlayne Ave.

Why? According to a statement, the gas station’s owner, Asmat Ali, loves his customers and wanted to show it.

Pamela Price of the health department says the gas station is located in an area of town that has a high prevalence of disease, and Ali hopes to “raise awareness about protecting their health.”
