RTA, TAMUCC Team Up for Gas Saving Dump the Pump Event

The Regional Transportation Authority wants you to dump the pump and ride the bus, saying that it will not only save you gas money, but will help lower pollution as well.

They have also teamed up with the Pollution Prevention Partners from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi to test people's vehicle emissions and give away repair vouchers of up to $500.

"When your cap starts to wear, and when it does, all the fumes from the gas starts to leak, which makes you lose gas. A lot of it," TAMUCC student Josh Lopez.

This is the eighth year for the nationwide Dump the Pump event.
