Weird But True

LINCOLN, Neb. -- One gas station manager's mistake paid off for drivers in Lincoln who were in the right place at the right time Friday. For 30 to 45 minutes, three of the Kabredlo's Convenience Store's four pumps sold premium unleaded gas for 29 cents a gallon, according to the Associated Press .

Gas hasn't been that cheap since 1955, according to AAA Nebraska. As news of the cheap fuel spread, lines formed at the store at, said Max Wolfe, who was doing landscaping for Kabredlo's.

Wolfe and his co-workers took time out to fill up. "I was on E, and I filled my tank up for $4," Wolfe told the AP. "It made my day."

Nathan Olson told the AP he usually pays $72 to fill his gas-guzzling 1998 Ford F-150. Friday, he filled the tank three-quarters full for $3.50.

The store manager who said she made the mistake didn't give her name. On average, Lincoln gas stations are charging $2.93 a gallon for gas, according to AAA.
