Oh man, you guys make me really feel old. I remember buying Premium for my mini-bike when I was a kid for .26 cents a gallon. My .50 cent allowance used to last me all week in gas! Better yet, I can remember when the airports used to let me pull my hot rod Camaro on the runway to fill up with Av gas for $1.04.

In 1998 I had a 25' wellcraft, it cost met $100 to fill up the Boat and the tahoe I had to pull it with.

Boat had a 65 Gallon tank.

Truck had a 30.

Gas was $.80 a gallon. In fact I still had a few bucks for beer!

The US is going to start exporting gas (not oil) for the first time in 20 years. Yet we are still above $3 a gallon. Go figure....

World market.

Same reason Canada wants a pipe line, right now we are the only ones buying that oil, get it to the gulf ports and they can make more.

When I was in high school (80 to 82) I think I was paying .55- .65 per gallon in my 70 SS chevelle, and making $9 per hour part time.

Oh yea and someone would pump it for you!!!!!

Living at home, no bills NICE!
