Worried about high fuel prices? Shell has you covered with its "Fuel My Passion" contest, offering one lucky person five years of free gas.

Entering is simple -- all you have to do is take a photo of yourself with your favorite ride. (Since Shell is in the gas business, that ride should probably be a motor vehicle, but bikers and equestrians are welcome to give it a shot.) One other small thing: in that pic, you'll need to be making the "Power of the V" sign, which we in America typically call the "peace sign", but can mean very different things if it gets twisted around. Pay attention and keep things G-rated.

Once you've snapped your masterpiece, simply upload it to, along with your name, contact info, and a brief description. Submissions will be accepted through June 22, and please note that you can't stuff the ballot box: only one entry per person, please.

Every day from now until the end of the contest, Shell will draw one winner at random for a $50 Shell V-Power® Gift Card. After June 22, the public will have a look at the submissions and vote for its favorite. The fan fave will win free Shell gasoline for five years, and five runners-up will win Shell gas for one year.

Still interested? Check the press release below for additional details, or visit to enter now. (Don't forget to read the rules and regs!)

HOUSTON, April 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Are you one of those people who suffers from vehicle separation anxiety, maintains the inside of your car so that it always looks new, or valets your own vehicle because of the fear of someone else behind the wheel of your prized possession?

Participating in the sweepstakes is simple – from now until June 22, drivers who are passionate about what they drive or just take pride in their ride can upload a photo at showing the "Power of the V" sign alongside their favorite ride. Only one entry per person is accepted, giving consumers a chance to win one of the following prizes:

  • Grand Prize: One fan favorite winner will be decided by public vote and will win Shell V-Power® premium gasoline for five years.
