Whoops - employee accident brings 33 cent gasoline to Wisconsin town, frenzy ensues
The incident happened in Minocqua, Wisconsin, at Trig's Minocqua Shell. After the station closed at 10, the cheap gas prices kicked in and, since the pumps still accepted credit cards, people quickly spread the word. Before too long, 586 gallons were sold at the cheap price. Once police noticed the crowd at the pumps and called the station manager, the price was corrected. The manager was a little peeved at the customers, many of them regulars, calling them dishonest. I think it just shows once again how eager we are for gas (I'm guilty here, too, don't get me wrong) and how we'll take advantage of just about anyone - friend or foe - to get it cheaply.
