PLOVER — A mistake at a Portage County gas station left many customers fuming.

A BP gas station in Plover mistakenly advertised its medium-grade gasoline for only 37 cents a gallon!

Word of the price spread through social media, and hundreds of cars lines up for the cheap gas. In the end, the gas station manager shut down the pumps.

“I was excited. I have a big Durango, so I wanted to fill up, but I’m stuck at a quarter tank still. I had my hopes up,” one driver said.

“I was very disappointed.  I was really hoping we could get in and get a couple of gas cans and fill them up, get some cheap gas,” another driver said.

Police were called in to help control the situation.
