Computer glitch gives out free gasoline
PITTSFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — You can pump, but you can't hide. Some motorists in Michigan have found out the hard way that you can't just gas and go.
They discovered that because of a computer glitch they could swipe their drivers' licenses instead of credit cards to gas up for free at the pumps outside the Meijer chain.
A total of 107 people figured it out, many of them students from nearby colleges in Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor.
In some cases people got as many as 15 fillups over a three-week period. Meijer got hosed for thousands.
