The difference between が and を with the potential form of a verb?

When using the potential form of a verb, I was taught that the particle を becomes が. However, in real life this seems to not always be the case. I've even heard Japanese people use を instead of が quite often. What's the difference between the following two sentences? Is を actually grammatically correct? ここで切符が買えますか? ここで切符を買えますか?
