Gas for One Cent?!

Feb 12, 2014 -- 11:46am

 

 

A gas station outside of Chicago somehow had all their pumps glitch and set the price of gas at 1¢. Not surprisingly, word got out and massive lines formed to take advantage of it.

 

Police came to break up the giant line of cars waiting for fuel, which only reformed immediately. Cops figured out why when they saw the price of fuel at the pump, when they told the gas station attendant to shut the pumps down.

 

Apparently the 1¢ gas lasted two hours, and no one ever gave the heads up that something was off, which leads me to...would you fill up and drive off or would you let the gas station know something was up?
