The gas stations along the Interstate Highway 64 corridor in Oklahoma City were among the first to go dark on Wednesday night, as a record-breaking storm slammed the state.
But Walmart isn’t done yet.
It is now offering a variety of discounts on gas at a number of other Walmarts, including a 15 percent discount on regular unleaded and regular unleaned gasoline at its three stores in Oklahoma, Tennessee and Arkansas.
Walmart announced the discounts on Thursday, after the storm forced it to close four of its five stores in the region for nearly a week.
The company said the price cuts were part of a partnership with Exxon Mobil.
The discount offers were made available to all Walmart customers who live within 500 miles of the Oklahoma City-Bryan County-Cleveland, Ohio-Kentucky border.
The company is offering a 20 percent discount to people living in the Dallas area, a 20-percent discount to those living in Fort Worth, a 10 percent discount for people in Oklahoma and a 15-percent reduction on regular gasoline at Walmart’s other stores.
The discounts are available at Walmart stores nationwide, including in Alaska, Texas, California, Georgia, Missouri, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Washington, Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, Montana, Nevada and Washington, D.C.
The Walmart price cuts are not available to customers who buy gas at gas stations located in other states.
Walmart will still accept gas at other Walmart stores in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona.
The Oklahoma City storm knocked out power to nearly 100,000 customers in the metro area, according to The Associated Press.
More than 70,000 people lost power in Oklahoma in a matter of minutes, and the state’s gas and electricity companies say they have been overwhelmed by the aftermath.
Walmarts were closed in the affected areas until Friday.
