Apparently Visa had some kind of glitch in their processing - a similar story aired on NPR:

Pizza And Soda? That'll Be $23 Quadrillion, Please

Wow I wonder what would happen if that wasn't taken care off!

I don't know much about credit cards all I know is to swipe the card and pay the balance. Would the Petrol station be credited $26T?
Anything the US and EU build the Russians do it better! i.e. TU-144 vs Concorde and TU-154 vs The 727...

Saw that on the news this morning. It happened to at least three different people over the weekend.

I was charged 23 quadrillion for gas at BP the other day. Visa said it happened to approx. 13,000 people.

There's really no way it couldn't have been taken care of.

If my math is correct, 23 quadrillion dollars is somewhere above 2,500 times the US national debt.

Good luck repaying it! The interest payments alone would be greater than the US's GDP! The store owner would be laughing all the way to the bank though!

And people complain here in NY City having to pay $10-11 a pack for most cigarettes.
Some IT programmer made a big boo-boo.
