    Marathon also will give $1.5 million to hurricane relief for the Gulf Coast.

    DETROIT -- Atlas Oil Co. and Marathon Oil Corp. have joined with area radio station 93.1 Doug FM and Play It Again Sports to offer its "Tanks Giving" promotion, which will give 20 lucky listeners a deep discount on gas, Atlas Oil stated.

    On the morning of Wednesday, Nov 26, the radio station will reveal the address of a Marathon station where the partners will offer a 50-cent discount per gallon to the first 50 vehicles to fill their tanks, up to 20 gallons, beginning at 9:30 a.m., the company stated.

    In addition, Play It Again Sports will be giving away free merchandise and coupons.

    In other Marathon news, the oil company will donate $1.5 million to the American Red Cross for the 2008 hurricanes, with $500,000 designated for Hurricane Gustav and $1 million for Hurricane Ike, the Red Cross stated.

    "We are grateful to Marathon for helping the Red Cross shelter, feed and care for the people affected by Hurricanes Gustav and Ike," American Red Cross President and CEO Gail McGovern said in a statement. "Their generous financial support ensures help is available to those whose homes and lives have been devastated. The American Red Cross could not perform its lifesaving mission without a proven partner like Marathon."

    In Texas, more than 8,000 Red Cross disaster workers provided more than 240,000 overnight stays for people seeking refuge in 397 shelters, and served more than 8 million meals and snacks to people displaced by this year’s storms. In Louisiana, the organization provided more than 87,000 overnight stays to people in 111 shelters. And, nearly 4,700 Red Cross disaster workers served more than 3 million meals and snacks to residents affected by Hurricanes Ike and Gustav.

    "Marathon is proud to support the American Red Cross," Clarence P. Cazalot Jr., president and CEO of Marathon Oil, said in a statement. "We have witnessed first-hand the positive impact this incredible organization and dedicated volunteers have on people who find themselves in need due to disasters beyond their control."
