Gas Pump Glitch Gives Drivers 44 Cent Gas

Last updated on Friday, June 14, 2013

(ANDERSON) - A glitch lowered the price of premium gas at the Marathon gas station at 38th Street and Columbus Avenue to 44 cents a gallon. The price was supposed to be $4.44.

Station employees were made aware of the glitch when a customer went in to pre-pay. Employees hit the shut-off switch to the pumps until the glitch could be fixed.

One customer's total bill for 12.8 gallons came to just $5.77.

Several customers waited in line for about an hour, hoping to get gas at the cheaper price.

Station owner Sunny Singh told The Herald Bulletin in Anderson the error cost the station about $200.
