Womens Posts Picture in Red Dress And Sparks Online Debate
Elvira Hancock has almost 50,000 followers on Twitter so it's not surprise that a photo she uploaded received over 20,000 favourites and 3,000 replies.
Standing outside in the sun she's dressed in a red bodycon style dress and holding a flower and captioned the pic: "Flourishing."
It's a pretty standard picture, she looks lovely and there is nothing really to be alarmed about.
But, one social media user spied something in the distance, and that is what has got people really talking.
The Twitter user, who goes by the name of Chidden, noticed that behind Elvira's left shoulder there is a petrol station's price list, reading $2.21 a gallon.
They tweeted: "Where y'all got gas at for $2.21 a gallon?"
What followed was an online debate about the price of gas in 21st Century America.
One person replied saying: "Our gas is $3.19 .. consider yourselves lucky."
Another person tweeted: "All I'm saying is gas prices were lower when Obama was president."
A third declared "Guys..what if I told you...that presidents had nothing to do with the price of gas."

A fourth person joked: "This tweet really brought people from all walks of life together to talk about gas. This is America."
One person asked: "Is that premium or diesel at 2.27? Either way that's a steal."
Another person was just shocked by the whole fiasco, saying: "The internet really amazes me, who was the first person to zoom in and notice the gas prices lmaooo i'm blown away by y'all."
Who would have thought that picture would go viral over gas prices?!
