CHICAGO (CBS) — Gasoline for 99 cents?

Even if it were true, you would need a canoe to get it in River Grove. The station is surrounded by water from the flooded Des Plaines River.

Cars would be hard-pressed to get anywhere near a pump.

A glitch with the digital sign at a BP station at River Road and Grand Avenue in River Grove, showed gasoline for under a buck.

WBBM Newsradio listener Jim Deveros sent in the picture.

While there is no official word on what caused the glitch, the water likely had something to do with it.
