Most people surely are pleased to see QuikTrip signs showing unleaded gas at $1.99 a gallon. Except some of the signs show that it’s $199 a gallon.

That’s because QuikTrip has some new monument signs that don’t yet have the correct numerals with decimal points following them.

“It doesn’t look like we want them to look,” says spokesman Mike Thornbrugh.

Not that it’s a huge deal.

“I think most people will overlook it and be pleased with the $1.99,” Thornbrugh says. “It’s a nice problem to have.”
