A local gas station owner says he wants to do his part in the face of the ongoing pandemic to give back to those on the front lines fighting COVID-19.

So, Tuesday and Thursday, Rami Patik, owner of the Ramco Express at 2222 F Street in Downtown Bakersfield, will be offering nurses and doctors free gas.

Patik says he's offering up to $25 in free gas to nurses and doctors who show their credentials at the pumps.

Those who show up don't even need to leave their vehicles. A station attendant will pump gas for them.

Nurses and doctors can gas up at Ramco Express from from noon to 6 p.m. Thursday.
