Rod Wave Dropped $25,000 Worth Of Free Gas In His Hometown After Gas Spike In Florida

The popular rapper announced his petro giveaway in a recent Instagram post.

If there’s one thing we all want someone to pay for, it’s definitely gas, and Rod Wave was his hometown’s superhero last week after he spent $25,000 on petroleum for his community after learning about the gas spike in St Petersburg, FL.

Just about a month ago, gas prices surged from $2.80 to $4.40 which prompted the musician to immediately give back to his community.

In an Instagram video, the rapper shared his take on the spike, saying gas prices are “high as f**k,” ultimately deciding to help drivers on Apr. 9 with a gas giveaway.

“April 9, I’m giving away $25,000 in free gas. So [on] April 9, 12 o’clock, pull up and get you a free full tank,” said the 22-year-old popular artist.

Wave’s mother, Charmaine Newsome, helped pump gas and organize volunteers, according to the Tampa Bay Times, with each individual receiving up to $50 in gas or what would equate to about 12 gallons.
