    Remember $.27 Gas?

    The clothesline thread made me take a trip down memory lane. I remember when gas was under $.30 a gallon and there would be price "wars."

    Oh I remember! Me and my mom would go this corner on town that had three gas stations on the corners.
    There would be the sandwiche type sign boards with gas prices! I remember 25 cents and 23 cents! Can you imagine that now? Heck I'd be happy with gas priced ten times 25 cents!

    Unfortunately, I am old enough to remember that. I could put $2 of gas in my car and drive all week.

    I can remember in St. Louis, Missouri they had price wars and gas got to 10 cents a gal. Now that dates me I'm sure, LOL

    Oh, yes! I would put 25 cents in my mom's big Chevy and head to my boyfriend's house 20 miles away. She never knew because the tank was at the same level. And oh yes, the price wars! Never see that anymore.

    Remember that and Dad buying cigaretts for .19 cents a pack. He said he would quit if they got to be over .25. Then smokes got to .50 and you know the rest. Dad never did quit.

    well now it cost me 48.70 to fill my car today --premium gas is 3.92 a gal. with a dime off if you pay cash. otherwise 4.02. reg and super unleaded are at 3.669 and 3.799 a gal and we are the THIRD largest oil producing state in the US now. we beat CA out according to the news our state produced over 16 million barrels in the month of January 2012. And where does all this oil go? Certainly not here. overseas. I would be tickled if we could get gas for $2.50 a gal. the .51 mileage just don't cut it.
