Once again showing just how important the placement of a decimal point can be is the sign that you see above. Seen on the billboard for a Citgo gas station in Florida, the sign should have read $3.15 as opposed to $31.59. According to the accompanying news story, motorists were so interested that they stopped on the side of the road to snap a few pictures, which, rather ironically, is a total waste of gas. Still, with the ever-increasing price of a barrel of oil, we are sure to see signs like the one above prove accurate before the end of our lifetime! Thanks for the tip, Aaron!
