Boulder Gas Station Mistakenly Sold Gas for Only 2.5 Cents/Gallon
Holy smokes! Who knows for how long they had their pumps set to the wrong price, but until they fixed them, people must have been PUMPED!
History will show that even back when cars first came out, gas was 20 cents per gallon. Being able to fill up in 2018 for only 40 cents? Whoopie!!
Northern News Net tweeted out on Wednesday (December 12, 2018) that the night before (December 11) their son was at a gas station in Boulder where the price of gas on the pump was 0.025! He put 12+ gallons into his car for less than 2 bits (.50!)
It all happened at the Circle K/Shell station at the corner of Broadway and Elder.
We hope nobody lost their job over the mistake, but we do hope a lot of folks got an early Christmas gift!
