Oops: Shell Station sells diesel for 59 cents a gallon


October 23, 2008

Yet another gas station ended up selling fuel at a discount because of a mistake.

Mohinder Singh says he meant to set the price of diesel at $3.59 a gallon, but he forgot to add the “3” when  he was typing the new price into the computer at his Shell station in rural Wisconsin.

The Journal Times says 50 to 75 people took advantage of Saturday’s mistake, thereby costing Singh some $4,000.

“While he might not be able to do anything directly to recoup his losses, Singh wishes more people would do what one regular customer was honest enough to do — come back and pay the right amount,” the paper says.
