DALLAS – With the busy, and expensive, holiday shopping season in full swing, Army & Air Force Exchange Service gas stations worldwide are helping to make sure that filling up doesn’t empty the wallet.

“As we head into the final holiday shopping week, we are providing an added incentive for last-minute shoppers to come on base or post to see what the Exchange has in store,” said Col. Karen Fleming, the Exchange’s Deputy Director, Logistics.  “The savings at the pump are just the beginning of the value authorized shoppers will find at their Exchange.”
