PASADENA, Texas (CBS Houston) — Gas for $1 a gallon? It happened at one station in Texas.

Due to a technical glitch, a Conoco gas station in Pasadena was selling gas $1.01, according to KHOU-TV.

“When I was passing by, one of my brother-in-laws had called me saying it was a $1.01 a gallon here,” Benito Cruz told KHOU. “Ten dollars to fill up my whole tank,” Cruz said.

Word spread like wild fire through social media about the cheap gas.

“When they told me on Facebook, I thought it was a joke,” one driver told KPRC-TV. “Then my brother told me so we just came down.”

An employee at the Conoco station told CBS Houston that the glitch only lasted 30 minutes and they lost a few hundred dollars because of it.

According to AAA, the average for a gallon of regular gas in Texas is $3.84. The national average is $3.92.
