Gas station mistake leads to $16,000 loss in fuel sales
An employee at a Rancho Cordova gas station unintentionally discounted counted fuel prices in June 2022 to $0.69.
The accident occurred at a Shell station when gas prices were supposed to be marked at $6.99 but a misplaced decimal had prices at $0.699.
The manager of the gas station John Szczecina was fired following the error.
He said the minute he switched those gas prices over there was a car accident and it distracted him from checking the gas pumps.
“Somebody bought just a whole bunch of water bottles over at Costco, and they just went everywhere,” he said. “So, I went out there and I was helping them pick it up, put it back in their truck.”
When he came in the next day, Szczecina saw his district manager at the gas station who told him that they lost $16,000 in fuel sales.
Szczecina said the simple mistake may have cost him a job, but he said paying the money back it the right thing to do.
