    Feel like gas prices are making a dent in your budget? Imagine how Ray Crockett felt when he received a bill for nearly $85,000 after filling his gas tank.
    Nashville's News Channel 5 reports that Crockett charged about $30 in gas from a local station to his Citibank debit card last week during a seemingly routine fill-up.
    "I stopped here because they had the cheapest gas at the time," Crockett told the station. But that's not what his bank statement showed. "$84,522.54 to be exact," Crockett said.
    Crockett says he made the discovery when he attempted to use the card to buy lunch, and the card was denied. When he checked his balance, his statement claimed he was more than $84,000 overdrawn.
    "That can't be right," Crockett said of his initial reaction. "It is crazy."

    That may be so; but in this instance, Citibank and those other banks only processed the charges put through from MAPCO.

    The ERROR was on the side of MAPCO.

    Now, yes, all of those banks may look stupid for processing such exorbitant charges; but this is what happens with the technology in our society today.
