It could have been a storyline from "The Twilight Zone," minus Rod Serling's Lucky Strike—fueled monologue. Customers of a gas station in Lincoln, Nebraska were recently transported back to around 1955, after a station manager accidentally set the premium unleaded pump to sell go-juice for $0.29 a gallon. The pump continued its ten-for-one sale for around 45 minutes, before the manager discovered the mistake. After that, Claude Aiken led a torch-wielding mob up the hill toward weird, old Mr. Miller's barn.
