    An error at northern Illinois gas station caused pumps to sell fuel for a penny a gallon.

    The (Crystal Lake) Northwest Herald reports  a Shell station in Woodstock wound up mistakenly selling the nearly-free fuel for about two hours Sunday night.

    As word spread, cars lined up and jostled to fill-up.

    Woodstock Police Sgt. Dennis Leard says authorities had to use an emergency shut-off to stop the sales before the gas station closed in order to reset the pumps to regular prices.
