Can you imagine filling up your gas tank for just a few bucks? Several people in Phoenix say they bought fuel for just 30 cents a gallon Thursday night.

Multiple ABC15 viewers reached out to report the ARCO gas station near Interstate 17 and Bethany Home Road had mistakenly priced gas at just a fraction of a dollar, instead of the correct price of just over $3.

A short video from Sarahi Martinez shows her getting Unleaded Plus gas for $0.309, with her total ringing up at just 76 cents for almost two-and-a-half gallons of gas.

"Hundreds of people filled up their car and even gallons of reserve gas," another viewer told us in a message.

We spoke with an employee at the gas station early Friday morning, who said he arrived at work around 11 p.m. The employee said there were a lot of cars at the station and customers mentioned seeing a post about the cheap gas online. However, he says he is not aware of any price difference or mistake at the store.
