$0.35 Gas in NC

bruh on the phone, "You ain't gon believe this shit!!"

Drivers Flood Station for 35 Cent Gas

Traffic was backed up and police were called to control the crowd after a Wilmington gas station accidentally set the pump price at 35 cents a gallon.

Station employee Shane Weller said the price for premium gasoline was supposed to be $3.35 a gallon. He complained that customers paid the cheaper price all day without saying a word.

Hundreds of drivers flooded a BP station for the cheap gas after the price dropped around 9 a.m. Thursday. It was all the extra traffic that led station employees to the mistake around 6 p.m. They found it after calling their district manager, looking for permission to change the price as a way to decrease the flow of customers.
