Tonight's puzzle is an 11x11 by Sally Hoelscher that's called "Pass the Gas Station." We think you'll find it super smooth. It's not always easy being green, but this puzzle is one of our easier offerings here at Lil AVC X!
Sally Hoelscher (she/her) has been constructing crosswords since 2018, and her puzzles have appeared in a number of outlets. She also writes a daily blog about the USA Today puzzle. In addition to crosswords she enjoys reading, biking, and sitting in front of the fireplace with her cat on her lap.
Sally says: "I'm delighted to be part of the Lil AVC X editing team this year, and to be making my AVCX debut with this puzzle. I'm happy with how this puzzle turned out. I can't tell you what inspired it, because that would be a major spoiler. We can chat after you solve the puzzle!"
