MAYFIELD VILLAGE, Ohio --- A recent survey by commercial auto insurer Progressive found that 69 percent of truckers say fuel costs are their most concerning business expense. To relieve some of that stress, the insurer is giving away more than $150,000 in free fuel with the "Progressive Pumps Up the Savings Free Fuel Giveaway." The promotion includes three $25,000 grand prizes.
Progressive will give away thousands of $25 fuel cards at commercial auto tradeshows throughout the year, including the Mid America Truck Show, Great American Truck Show, Great West Truck Show and America Towman Exposition. For a complete list of shows, go to www.progressivecommercial.com.
Beginning March 27, small business owners and truckers can also register at www.progressivecommercial.com to win one of three $25,000 grand prizes. In addition, two $50 fuel cards will be awarded daily throughout 2008. Visitors can enter daily for the $25,000 grand prizes and the $50 fuel cards.
"The average trucker or small business owner can easily spend thousands of dollars a year in fuel, so a $25,000 grand prize would help with a giant business expense. Even $25 can help with that next fill-up," said Tom Corpus of Progressive's commercial lines group. "That’s why we're giving away more than $150,000 in free fuel online and at more than 20 tradeshows around the country this year."
