During an event titled “Knight Up, Gas Up” on Thursday, one Smith’s, a Kroger subsidiary found across seven Western states, in Skye Canyon will be giving away gift cards on a first-come, first-served basis with the help of team members starting at 8 a.m. That day, and the next, this gas station will charge 20 cents less for gas to anyone who refuels there.
This is the second time the team has hosted an event of this nature, the first occurring April 22 in celebration of the franchises’ fan appreciation week.
Gas prices in Nevada are averaging $5.67 as of this report, which is a full 50 cents more than the national average. Clark County, comprising Las Vegas, is currently in the median of statewide gas prices at $5.609.
The Golden Knights are the 31st-oldest franchise in the NHL, having just played their fifth season. Former Golden Knight Deryk Engelland will be at the station to greet fans and will be joined by current players and the team mascot, Chance the Gila monster.
