UPDATE JULY 11: According to the Terrible Herbst phone application, today's location for 60-cent gas is at Sunset and Jones.

A car crash and long lines caused frustrations among drivers near Sunset and Jones during a nearby gas station promotional event.

Folks rushed to the Terrible Herbst at Sunset and Jones for cheap gas but quickly found themselves pumping the brakes.

“Two hour wait but it went by quick,” says Stacie McAlister.

The 60 cent gas was only for purchase between 5 and 7 p.m right in the middle of rush hour in already busy part of the valley.

“They should have way more police presence going forward,” says Jameela Taylor.

Chopper 13 was over the area where the line of cars extended for blocks.

Las Vegas Police officers were also in the area directing traffic.

Some people waiting in line told 13 Action News that other drivers weren't playing fair and that some even went to the extreme to get to the pump.

“I saw an SUV almost run a car off the road trying to cut them and then they were letting other people in front of them so it was just crazy,” says Taylor.

At the intersection of the gas station, a crash was spotted.

Police say no one was injured, and 13 Action News is working to learn if it was related to all that extra cheap gas traffic.

Despite woes from drivers folks that finally made it to the pump say the long wait was worth it.

“I’m an Uber driver so I use a lot of gas so I’m saving a lot of money," says McAlister.

Here's a look at the area from Chopper 13 in the hour before the first 60-cent gas event took place:
