Manager Fired After Accidentally Selling Gas For 69 Cents Per Gallon

A California gas station manager has lost his job after he accidentally set the price for gas at 69 cents per gallon -- instead of $6.99 like he was supposed to.

John Szczecina, who managed a Shell gas station, says he accidentally moved a decimal point when resetting gas prices. By the time learned of his mistake, countless customers had already stopped by to take advantage of the deal, costing the station's owner $16,000. Szczecina's sister has set up a GoFundMe page for her brother, who says he's worried the owner will sue him to recover the lost money.

The last time a gallon of gas cost 69 cents in the United States was in October 1978, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

If you were the owner, would you sue Szczecina?
