$81 Billion Gasoline Bill

We all survived some pretty pricey fill ups at the gas pump last summer, but none of us have anything on the bill one Washington man got when he recently topped off his tank.

How about a bill for more than 81-billion dollars?

Juan Zamora recently topped off his tank for his weekly commute and he thought he’d put in 90-dollars worth of gas.

Then, he received an automated call from his credit card company checking a pre-authorization at a gas station for the amount of 81-billion, 400-million, 836-thousand, 908-dollars.

Zamora says he was told the company used the merchant number and not the dollar figure from the pump.
