I know i might be showin my age, about around 1.20 is what I remember. I always like watching older movies and seeing the gas prices during the movies and reminisce, "Those were the days..." You can almost date movies that way.

.69 cents, I new there was another reason I liked that number.

.69 cents when I started driving @ 16 in the 80's. I remember one gas station every now and then would put all 3 octanes on sale at .69 cents. I think it was to get rid of old(premium) gas.

High school. Gas cost what the octane rating was. 87 octane was $0.87. 93 octane was $0.93. I could afford to drive a 1984 Bronco and fill up the 33 gallon tank regularly. *sigh*

I'm showing my age, but I remember 29 cents. I had a VW bug then and could fill up for under $3.00 and run for 2 weeks.

Damnit. $20 won't fill up my motorcycle and that only lasts me the day, sometimes less.

I remember paying 43 cents a gallon for my first 20-gallon fillup. For that tank of gas I had to work an entire DAY- 6 and a half hours at 1.60 an hour, which was minimum wage at the time. By the end of my first year of driving, though, gas had gone up over 70 percent, and by the end of that year I was paying over 70 cents a gallon. This was 1978.

I remember seeing the gas wars when a station on one side of the street was .32 and the other was .31 out of my fathers station wagon window.

When I started driving it was .49 a gallon. My father would take my car to work all the time so I had a buddy with a 68 'stang. We'd scrape up 5 bucks and cruise all night.

Ha...ha....not a granpa yet, but getting up in age. Had children late in life so if do become a grandpa...well lets put it this way, I will be in my mid/late 60's when my girls get out of college.

A gob is a round chocolate cake about the size of a softball, cut in half with frosting in the center. If I can remember correctly they had some guy/kid on the wrapper. And the coke was real coke, (no not the drug kind) it just tasted different from a glass bottle.
