Don't Let Gas Prices Get You 'Down'

With gas prices soaring, one Atlanta church is feeding its sheep by filling their tanks.

Mount Carmel Baptist Church is answering it's members prayers by giving away gasoline.

One hundred church goers received $20 gift certificates for a nearby gas station.

Dozens of drivers waited patiently in line to redeem their vouchers.

"It may not be much, but the little gas that we're putting in somebody's tank will enable them to go to work and meet some of their needs and put a little sunshine in (their) life," Rev. Timothy Flemming, pastor at Mount Carmel, said.

The church hopes to inspire others to reach out to those hurt by the tough economy.

Meanwhile, gas prices are still hovering around four dollars a gallon and a new study suggests fewer drivers are stopping for gas.

AAA Mid Atlantic reports a 15 percent increase this year in calls from stranded drivers.

Officials in other areas are also reporting an increase.

In Dallas, the daily number of calls from stranded drivers has doubled in recent months.

Experts say running on fumes could actually cost you in the long run because it can damage a car's fuel pump.
