Glitch Leads To $0.01 Gas Price At Illinois Shell Station

WOODSTOCK, Ill. (UPI) — Customers at an Illinois Shell station received gas for just 1 cent per gallon due to a glitch in the system, an employee said.

Rita Castillo, who has worked at the Shell station in Woodstock for about five years, said a glitch in the system Sunday night led to gas being sold for 1 cent per gallon instead of the intended price of $3.50 per gallon, WBBM NewsRadio, Chicago reported Tuesday.

Castillo said there were long lines of cars waiting when she arrived for work.

“The first thing I do is run outside and check the price,” Castillo said.

She said the price was returned to normal Sunday night. She said she does not know how many people purchased gas for the nearly free price.

Castillo said she hopes Shell will make up for her boss’s lost product and income.

“I like my boss. He’s a good man. I don’t know what’s going on. I hope the company replaces that stuff. But I feel upset for him,” she said.
