“I was very upset that there’s that many dishonest people,” said Andrea Reuland, the owner of Trigs Shell Station in Minocqua, Wisconsin.
She lost $3 per gallon on 586 gallons of gas sold during a 45-minute period when local residents phoned others to come and get gas because an employee had made a mistake and entered the price at 32.9 cents vs. $3.299 per gallon.
Eighty-seven percent of the people who responded to a survey about the incident said they would have done the same thing as the Minocqua residents.
Describe who is affected by what buyers did by not paying the correct price for the gas. Describe a simple test for resolving an ethical dilemma such as this where you can get something for free or very little.
