CHICAGO (WLS) -- Millionaire businessman and ex-mayoral candidate Willie Wilson plans to donate $1 million in free gas this week, after his free gas giveaway Thursday snarled traffic across the city but provided $200,000 worth of fill-ups.

Wilson said Friday he plans to donate $1 million in free gas next Thursday, March 24, at 50 participating locations in Chicago and suburban Cook County.

Starting at 7 a.m., each vehicle at those gas stations will get $50 in gas until $1 million is exhausted, as residents struggle with high gas prices.

WATCH: Lines wrap around blocks at gas stations across city

As Chicago businessman Willie Wilson offers free gas to thousands Thursday, many are lining up.

The stations will also lower their prices next week, so more people can partake, Wilson said.

Wilson said that they are working with police to avoid any traffic problems. Tickets will be handed out 1-400 at each station for the gas giveaway.

Chicago businessman Willie Wilson doled out $200K in free gas fill-ups at select stations Thursday.

On Thursday, as Wilson hosted his first gas giveaway, lines stretched for blocks all across the city. By 7 a.m. at the Amoco located at 7201 N. Clark St. in Rogers Park, the line, which had started at 2 a.m., went all the way down Touhy Avenue to Sheridan Road.
