Sikh man in US sells fuel at $500 loss a day, says ‘people don’t have money right now’, wife works overtime to make up for it In 2007, too, during the recession, Jaswiendre Singh reportedly bought the gas station and lowered prices Amid rising costs, a Sikh gas station owner in the US is selling fuel to his customers at a much lower price than he had purchased it. Jaswiendre Singh claimed that he was suffering a loss of about $500 per day by selling nearly 3,785 litres of gas, reports CNN. He said, “People don’t have the money right now. My mother and my father did teach us to help if you have something," adding that,"he wanted to help people---not to make money--and that he was very happy doing so”. The losses have forced him and his wife to work overtime. In March, his selling price was 10 cents less than the cost of purchase. He said that it didn’t matter, and that “God gave [him] the help." Twitter users lauded Singh’s gesture. “Some heroes wear turbans,” one wrote. This is not the first time Singh has helped his customers spend less money – in 2007, he reportedly bought the gas station and lowered prices during the recession the following year.
