United Airlines is doing their part to encourage people to get the COVID-19 vaccine by giving away as much as a year’s worth of travel to vaccinated customers.

Through the airline’s ‘Your Shot to Fly’ sweepstakes, new and existing loyalty members who upload their vaccination records to United Airlines’ mobile app or website by June 22 are entered to win a round-trip flight for two, in any service class, to anywhere in the world United flies.

United plans to give away 30 pairs of tickets away throughout the month of June. On July 1, United will randomly select five loyalty members for the grand prize of one year of free travel. The grand prize will include 26 pairs of free roundtrip tickets, allowing the grand prize winners to make a trip every other week.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.
