PLEASANTON, Calif. — Shortly after Kroger Co., Cincinnati, made a similar announcement, Safeway here said last week it would double its PowerPump Gas Rewards on gift cards purchased in its stores. The program began Friday and is scheduled to run through the holiday season. PowerPump is available in all U.S. Safeway markets, including its Vons, Pavilions, Randalls, Tom Thumb, Carrs, Genuardi’s and Dominick’s banners.
