At a gas station in Germany gasoline was priced EUR9.99

It sounds crazy, but it happened. At a gas station in Filderstadt in the state of Baden-Wurttnmberg the price for one liter of gasoline was EUR9.99. You may think the reason for this ridiculous price is the difficult period the Middle East countries go through. Well, it's not. The revolutions, the revolts and all the problems they are confronting right now are just tiny little details.
Apparently the real reason why a liter of gasoline reached that price is that the gas station was running low on gasoline and by increasing the price, the owners believed the customers will stay away.
But this didn't happen. Customers went in anyway and filled their tanks. At the register, they were amazed of how much they had to pay and claimed they didn't see the warning signs. They were very upset at seeing their bill and some of them even called the police.
All in vain, as they didn't find anything wrong, the upset clients had to pay.
The problem was solved in the end and it seems that the whole mess came from a supplier that affected several gas stations, leaving them without super gasoline.
