New Zealand: February 29 causes a bug and paralyzes the country's gas stations. Across the country, gas stations were partially or even completely closed to the public.

In the capital Wellington, some stations have closed completely, leaving customers facing signs reading "Nationwide payment outage - site unavailable". A software problem “This is a national issue affecting all fuel brands and it appears to be a software issue with the payment service provider because it is February 29, a leap year,” declared spokesperson Julien Leys of the Gull fuel distribution group.
