Computer Glitch Triggers Price War between Two Ohio Gas Stations that Drops to Pennies per Gallon
TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — A computer glitch led to a brief price war between two gas stations in northwest Ohio, allowing some drivers to fill their tanks for pennies per gallon.
WTOL-TV reports that a computer malfunction dropped prices at one north Toledo gas station, and another across the street lowered its prices to stay competitive early Sunday.
Customer Taylor Kline told the station he filled his empty tank for just 26 cents. The extra-low pricing lasted at least three hours before returning to normal.
The national average Monday for regular gas was $1.70.
