Progressive "Pumps" Up Truckers’ Wallets with $150,000 in Free Fuel


Insurer announces the “Progressive Pumps Up the Savings Free Fuel Giveaway”.

MAYFIELD VILLAGE, Ohio.— It’s no secret that rising fuel costs are a big stress on business owners and truckers. In fact a recent survey by leading 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,” including three $25,000 grand prizes.

There are two ways to win:

* In person — 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
* Online — Beginning March 27, small business owners and truckers can register at 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, with 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.”
