The Fourth of July is a wonderful celebration of our great nation, and a time-honored tradition is shooting off fireworks.
CLEVELAND - If you're hitting the road for the Fourth of July holiday, a retail chain wants to help save you some money.
AAA projects 40 million Americans will take a trip of 50 miles of more this holiday week. The average traveler is expected to spend $747. But if you belong to B.J.'s Wholesale Club you can save some of that money on gas.
On Wednesday morning, participating B.J.'s are offering regular unleaded gas at $2.50 a gallon to the first 200 of its members in line. That's about $1 cheaper than the national average.
Here's the deal: you have to be a member or sign-up for membership in line.
The gas stations open at 6:30 a.m. Wednesday morning. There are four locations in northeast Ohio: Akron, Avon, Middleburg Heights and North Canton.
This is only for Wednesday, July 3, 2013, and it's only for the first 200 members in line.
Here are the B.J.'s locations:
1677 Home Ave., Akron, OH 44310
38292 Colorado Ave., Avon, OH 44011
6944 W. 130th St., Middleburg Heights, OH 44130
6924 Frank Ave. NW, North Canton, OH 44720
Do your pet a favor and keep them at home during the show.
