Dozens of Texans took advantage of a Conoco gas station after an apparent computer glitch marked gas prices at $1 a gallon, MyFoxHouston.com reports.

"It's a blessing," Julisa Villareal told the station, who said her family filled up several vehicles for a total of about $55.00.

Drivers at the Pasadena station, who were shocked at the low price, reportedly called family and friends to take advantage of the super-low prices while gas prices around the country hover around $4. Some even turned to social media websites to blast news of the deal.

Like all good things, however, it came to an end when a station manager was notified and shut down the pumps, the report said.
