Gas at 33-cents per gallon
December 8, 2007 1:13pm CST
A big price mistake was made by an employee in a Minocqua, Wi gas station, entered the price of a gallon of gasoline as 32.9 cents instead of $3.299. Word of the bargain spread fast, people buying 586 gallons of gas in an hour and 45 minutes til the gas station manager learned about it and pushed the emergency stop. "I was very upset that there's that many dishonest people," she said. "They knew there was a problem, and they took advantage of an employee's mistake and I think that's terrible." If you had that chance to get gas at 33-cent per gallon, would you take it?

There are two sides of the coin. The consumers might think it's truly a bargain so they made a rush. On the other hand, some actually knows the mistake and had taken advantage. It's not if we take advantage or not but the real big question really is: What happen to that employee who made the mistake? Maybe, he was beaten black and blue and no more job to do.

well for me, the first thing i'm gonna do before filling my tank is to ask an attendant if the price per gallon is really 32.9 cent, everybody knows for a fact what the right price per gallon is,obviously there was mistake. Sometimes we cant blame people to take advantage of other people's mistakes. Its wrong but still they try to justify it.

I agree that that is a big mistake that gas price is only 33 cents per gallon,in my country almost $3.000 per gallon,so if there is the gas with the price 33 cents per gallon,it is big question???Is the gas can use on our car or not??
