Glitch at Rancho Cordova, Calif. Shell gas station temporarily lowers price to 69 cents a gallon

RANCHO CORDOVA, California (KGO) – Drivers filling up a gas station at a Shell gas station in Rancho Cordova took advantage of a “gas problem”.

A technical error caused the pumps to pump gas for just 69 cents a gallon.

The problem went on for about three hours, allowing a driver to fill up with just $ 14 and then inviting friends and relatives to do the same.

“I looked at the numbers and it was 69 cents a gallon. You know what I did, I pressed that button and it started to go up and the dollar sign just went down?” said a lucky driver.

It turned into a circus in a few minutes

It turned out that the error was a misplaced comma on the electronic signs outside the station.
