    Gas at $0.35/gallon

    WILMINGTON, 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.

    Station 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.

    It 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.


    I am guessing employee Shane Weller isn't too bright. I am also guessing Shane Weller is looking for a new job.

    Well duh! It might be a little immoral to take advantage of a mistake like that but so is gas companies raping us with high prices.

    Could anybody be that stupid?

    Me thinks he probably figured out the mistake long before nine hours, and called all his friends.
