Drivers flood station for 35 cent gasWILMINGTON, N.C. - Traffic was backed up and police were called to control the crowd after a Wilmington gas station accidentally set the pump price at 35 cents a gallon.
The Wilmington Star-News reported Friday that hundreds of drivers flooded a BP station for the cheap gas after the price dropped around 9 a.m. Thursday.........

Re: Drivers flood station for 35 cent gasIt was all the extra traffic that led station employees to the mistake around 6 p.m. They found it after calling their district manager, looking for permission to changing the price as a way of stemming the flow of customers.
??? It was?
Geez, I would have figured out something was wrong when people were only putting $5 in their tanks instead of $30-$50.
But that's just me.

Re: Drivers flood station for 35 cent gasStation employee Shane Weller said the price for premium gasoline was supposed to be $3.35 a gallon. He complained that customers paid the cheaper price all day without saying a word.
who the fuck would be like "OMG WHY AM I ONLY PAYING 35 CENTS!?".
if I was an employee i'd put an out of order sign on one of the pumps, go fill up my tank, then buy all the gas cans that they have there, and fill those too
