Imagine if it was full serve.

One Tennessee woman found a bill for more than $58,000 for a tank of gas when a Mapco station owner – who may or may not have been trying to pay off his annual rent in one fell swoop – accidentally charged her a wee bit, according to Jalopnik. The exact amount was $58,278.35, and when almost $300 is a mere rounding error, you know this was a substantial mess-up.

Jalopnik said the woman was refunded the money after Mapco and Suntrust Bank collaborated on fixing the snafu, and the woman received a $100 gift card from Mapco. The big question is if she's going to spend it on gas.

      Who cares about that gas, but the price of that Pizza is pure robbery...unless it was family-sized.

      Another Mapco customer 25 north of this location was charged $84,000 for a tank of gas last Friday. Sounds like a computer glitch to me. The other driver banks with CitiBank, and they're refusing to reverse the charge because they say Mapco denies receiving the payment.

      This news item is more important than the plural of Prius.

      58 grand for a tank of gas? Here in the Netherlands, that seems about right...
