I remember it being 87 cents when I got my license, not all that long ago early 90's. When I was a kid we had an old gas pump at my dad's shop that only went up to $5.00. I remember asking him why, and being told that when he was younger there was no way to put five bucks worth of gas in anything.

There was a short period when I was on travel for the Navy in 98/99 that I saw gas for 68-cents a gallon in NJ. I wanted to slit my tank, fill it and my trunk up when I saw that! Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, I never saw it over $1.20 or so for 20+ years. Everything was good until the 2000's....

Fond memories....... Now I know why it was acceptable for my old 1983 340 Sea Ray Sedan Bridge to guzzle 30-35 gallons an hour at cruise..... (twin old school 454's)

And you could get as many speeding tickets as you wanted as long as you just paid them.
