A Shell gas station in east Houston gave away free gas to hundreds of lucky motorists Wednesday morning to promote its new gasoline.

The free gas giveaway was held at the Shell station at 5100 block of Lockwood Drive from 7:30am to 8:30am. Drivers got up to 15 gallons of the new Shell gas product for free.

It's part of a promotion Shell is having at gas stations nationwide.
