I remember when it was 46 cents a litre...
I do remember those prices.....right around the time I started driving a car would be my guess. Mid 80s?
I was able to start driving at 16 in '97. Gas at the Hess station was 99 cents a gallon.
Crazy how high gasoline is anymore.. And when it falls to $3.14 you think it's a steal because your not paying $4.. It's ashame. I'm bitter about it, gf is in school 2 hrs away and my vehicle has a 6 liter engine, boo
Wow......here's a pretty eye-popping little video. Rising Gasoline Costs | FlowingData
I just don't remember prices this low in the 90s (and early OOs, too) but stats don't lie.
...and when I learned to drive, it was 21.9 cents per gal (in Missouri)
How does one take a picture of a gas sign reading $1.19.9 with a Mu-43 digital camera?
My guess would be find a gas station that went out of business 20 years ago..... or uses a multiplier. Right now, gas here is $1.09 (x3) per gallon.
I actually pass that sign all the time, it's just leaning against an older building on the outer limits of town along with an old coca-cola bottle vending machine and an old cigarette dispenser. Every time i pass that sign it reminds me how twisted things have become (and I work at an Oil Refinery!)
So it's your fault!!!!
I get 14 miles to the gallon at 3.80 per...
*grabs torches n pitchforks*
Sometimes I miss my vibe. Until I look at my saddle leather seats. Then I'm ok with it. Lol
haha, I insulate equipment and piping so that it runs more efficiently!! Apparently I need to do a better job of it by the looks of our prices
I remember when it was less than one-fifth of that!

when I started driving, I think it was barely over 50 cents per gallon, but that was quite a while ago ;-)
People in the US have no excuse for all this whinging about petrol prices; most other countries on earth that are not themselves major oil producers have MUCH higher costs. Eg. in Italy, if you were to convert litres and euros, I guess it would come to around $9 per gallon, PLUS huge tolls to drive short distances on the motorways, which are nowhere near as nice as US Interstate highways
BTW, nice pic, though!
Pah, you's all get off lightly in the states! Here in the UK it's currently averaging around £1.37 per litre for Unleaded (95 octane). So that works out at around £6.25 (US$9.80) per UK Gallon.
I think that converts to about US$8.60 per US Gallon
