CHICAGO — A day after his grocery store coupon giveaway, philanthropist and mayoral candidate Willie Wilson is doing another gas giveaway at 10 stations throughout the city Thursday.

This giveaway will provide people $2/gallon of regular gas per person, Wilson and city officials said. There could be other discounts for higher grades of gas, city officials said.

Cars can start lining up 7 a.m. Thursday and will get a sticker to indicate their place in line.

No queuing up before 7 a.m. is allowed. Each station could get up to 200 cars, and the wait time could be two to three hours, city officials said.

There will be one entrance and exit at each station, city officials said.
