    It happens more than you realise
    However, in most cases the forecourt realise within a few minutes as the operator sees the price on screen

    It has even happened to me, although it was a long time ago!
    The price change was for 77.9 to 79.9 and the pumps went to 7.99
    We noticed during the price update process, so had to resend the revised price to pumps

    "Staff only learned of the error after a customer blabbed about the pump bonanza on a local radio station."

    There's always one mouthy git who has to squeal.

    Usual course of action is to disable the affected pump until the repair is effected
    Sounds more like they did not know

    It is also possible that the piece of equipment between the tills and pumps had failed
    This also happens quite often
    Again though this is usually spotted by the store staff as it will normally return a fault and not allow communication
    It is possible the replacement part was not available
    In which case incorrect fuel price and/or volume can occur, the insurance then covers any loss for this where the forecourt has to remain open (as it usually affects all pumps) rather than close completely

    I bet they did know but did nothing because they were probably still making a profit even at that price, especially with cars queuing up to take advantage.
