The mayor was giving away gasoline.
People started lining up at 9 a.m. Saturday for a giveaway that started at noon.
Mayor Tiffany Henyard said more than 900 drivers showed up. Fill-ups ranged from $10 to $20 a car.
"The people of Dolton are proud, hardworking people. As the workforce and schools are reopened, I wanted to provide a little extra relief while they transition back and forth," Henyard said in a statement. "If we can help someone along the way in these trying times, we all should."
