Talk about sticker shock. Some drivers in Alabama are noticing a sign which reads $8.39 a gallon for gas. Reports show drivers who stopped off at the  Jet Pep station on Alabama 91 just off Interstate 65 in Cullman County noticed the out of the ordinary high gas price.

The sign should read, “$3.39,” but a lightning flash caused the electronic glitch during last week’s storms. The owners are now working to fix the problem. In the meantime, prices at the pump do not reflect the incorrect sign.
