Tennessee man charged $85,000 for a tank of gas
Feel like gas prices are making a dent in your budget? Imagine how Ray Crockett felt when he received a bill for nearly $85,000 after filling his gas tank.
Nashville's News Channel 5 reports that Crockett charged about $30 in gas from a local station to his Citibank debit card last week during a seemingly routine fill-up.
"I stopped here because they had the cheapest gas at the time," Crockett told the station. But that's not what his bank statement showed. "$84,522.54 to be exact," Crockett said.
Crockett says he made the discovery when he attempted to use the card to buy lunch, and the card was denied. When he checked his balance, his statement claimed he was more than $84,000 overdrawn.
"That can't be right," Crockett said of his initial reaction. "It is crazy."
Regular unleaded fuel at the Mapco station runs $3.05 per gallon. That means Crockett would have had to purchase about 27,712 gallons of gas to justify the outstanding charge.
