PASADENA, TX (CNN) - Some drivers in Texas got to fill up their cars for a steal- one dollar a gallon!  A technical glitch at this Pasadena gas station changed the price at the pump Monday night.  The news spread on Facebook.

People came from far away to take advantage of the bargain.

"We didn't believe it, so we got here. When I got here, I ended up filling up my truck, my wife's car, my dad's truck and his other truck. I ended up four cars up just with like $55."

The lucky break lasted several hours.  Once store employers discovered the mistake, the pumps were shut down.

Right now, we're paying more than triple that amount for gas.  Triple A says the national average for a gallon of regular is $3.92 a gallon.
