Long lines at the gas pump this morning in North Mankato all because of a gas giveaway. A team from Pioneer Bank were busy pumping $20 of gas for the first 200 customers through Kwik Trip in North Mankato, equivalent to $4,000. Local banks in communities across the nation are participating in an effort to create more awareness about the importance of banking at a community bank. CEO of Pioneer Bank, David Krause says, "That's one of the nice things about a community bank. When you make a deposit into a community bank the community bank turns around and lends the money to local businesses, local homeowners, and local consumers to help that local economy." This is the fourth time Pioneer Bank has participated in the gas giveaway event.
