Juju's Boo-Boo: ABC Anchor Says Oil Price Now 'Above $100 Per Gallon'

Good Morning America news anchor Juju Chang on Thursday made a goof that could surprise her morning show audience. Discussing instability in the Middle East, the reporter claimed that oil prices have been pushed above "$100 per gallon."

Obviously, Chang meant that oil prices are now over $100 per barrel. The current national average for a gallon of regular gasoline is $3.22. (See below for video of the hilarious gaffe. MP3 audio here.)

Her full quote, airing just after 8am on February 24: "And all that uncertainty in the Middle East has pushed oil prices above $100 per gallon. As a result, airfares are taking off. The airlines have already raised ticket prices four times this year, compared to three times during all of last year."
