Schuelke Auto Company announces economic stimulus package

Thursday, May 22, 2008

In response to direct customer feedback citing the prospect of rising gas prices as a top concern, Schuelke Auto Company announces its own economic stimulus package: an exclusive gas price protection policy that eliminates the risk of further spikes in fuel prices.

With the U.S. purchase of eligible Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge vehicles, customers can enroll in the "Let's Refuel America" program and receive a gas card that immediately lowers their gas price to $2.99 a gallon and keeps it there for three years. The offer is available at 3,511 U.S. Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge dealerships, including Schuelke Auto Company, through June 2, 2008 and is available on vehicles ranging from popular new compacts, crossovers and minivans to full-size diesel-powered pickup trucks.

"We are proud to introduce an unprecedented program to help put Storm Lake-area customers' minds at ease and do something to help working people who are worried about the volatility of fuel prices and vehicle cost of ownership," said Daniel E. Moore with Schuelke Auto Company, located at 211 W. 5th St. The Let's Refuel America gas card program works when a customer purchases a new Chrysler, Jeep or Dodge vehicle and selects the rogram in lieu of other available incentives.

The customer is provided with the registration process documentation and registers providng their required personal information via the dedicated website or toll-free 800 number. Once registered, the customer receives their gas card and separately their Personal Identification Number (PIN) within 4 to 6 week of application. The customer then swipes their Lets Refuel America Gas card at an eligible gas station, selecting up to 87 octane regular, E85 or diesel fuel and enters their PIN to begin the fueling process.

After the fuel transaction occurs, the customer's personal credit card (identified in the registration process) is charged $2.99 per gallon. Chrysler currently offers six models that get better than 28 miles-per-gallon on the highway: Chrysler Sebring, Chrysler Sebring Convertible, Dodge Avenger, Jeep Compass, Jeep Patriot and Dodge Caliber.

Through April, the six of these models combined have higher sales than in the first four months of 2007. Chrysler LLC, headquartered in AUburn Hills, Mich., produces Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and Mopar brand vehicles and products. Total sales worldwide in 2007 were 2.68 million vehicles. Sales outside of North America were the highest in a decade with an increase of 15 percent from 2006. The Company's product lineup features some of the world's most recognizable vehicles including the Chrysler 300, Jeep Wrangler and Dodge Charger.
