You know how much gas cost these days? It is horrible. Gas price is almost $3 per gallon; I wish I just didn’t have to travel that much. Or else I will just have to use the city Metro Transit Bus. So here was a story couple of days ago. A gas station in Wisconsin had a board saying 33 cents a gallon. And guess what happened – all the drivers started to line up after one another to get the deal.

But the thing was there wasn’t any deal at all. The 33 cents a gallon was a mistake. The gas station employee accidentally changed the old gas price to 33 cents per gallon price. An employee closing Trig’s Minocqua Shell for the night mistakenly entered the price of a gallon of gasoline as 32.9 cents instead of $3.299 on Monday night. That gas station worker had been working there for six month and had changed the gas prices 25 times in the past six months.

He left about 10 p.m., but drivers could still use their credit cards to buy gas. Word of the bargain spread fast in the rural northern Wisconsin community, with 42 people buying 586 gallons of gas in an hour and 45 minutes. One person had pumped 27 gallons and two purchased 18 gallons. Local police saw the horde at the station and called store manager Andrea Reuland, who went to the station and pushed the emergency stop. That’s a lot of money if you add up all the cents and the gallons.
