    So there was a ridiculous line all day and the attendant thought nothing of it? On a side note I almost died yesterday when i saw the cheapest gas around was $3.17 / gallon. And they say it will go higher this summer. :mad:

    Good help is hard to find these days. (!!!)

    Wonder how much that store lost on this deal??? $3 / gallon X 10,000 gallons is $30,000 the place is going to have to eat. Bummer for them.

    I don't know...it's kind of hard for me to feel bad for them. I just can't believe that no one said, "Wow....we're really busy today" when they saw the cars were lined up into the streets and backing up traffic. I mean it's one thing to go a couple hours and miss it. It's another to go 10 hours before figuring it out :rolleyes: - Ian

    I've had that happen before (a couple of months ago). Only the gas was priced at 64 cents per gallon. I went and told my boss who immediately (I have no idea why) called the gas station and reported it. Unfortunately for them, this was after I filled my tank up. :D
