This weekend, explore one of Arizona’s many scenic drives. It does wonders for the mind, body and soul.

Want Free Gas?


Our October issue is all about scenic drives, and by now you’ve probably seen a few that you’d like to drive yourself… Well, if you haven’t yet hit the road, we know of something that just might inspire you to pack up the kids and take a drive on one of the many roads less travelled in our state.

Starting tomorrow morning at 6:2oAM, CBS 5 will be popping by a Fry’s gas station somewhere in the Valley to hand out $40 gas cards to the first 155 people in line.

Talk about a great reason to get your engine started early… Of course, if you miss out on tomorrow’s give-a-way, you have the entire week to try and get your hands on a free gas card.

Just tune in to CBS 5 to find out where you need to go.

Let’s face it, free gas is always a good thing.
