    But I bought off-road diesel today for a buck and a half a gallon!!! So I bought over 800 gallons........and I don't have a tank.....

    'Course gas at 1.80 is also cheaper than it's ever been in my lifetime, cheapest in history my guess ( but I only go back to the '60's LOL)

    The lowest I remember was 17.9 cents/gal. It was full service (check oil, fluids, and wash windows plus pump gas and handle cash). I was a pump jockey getting $1 per hour. Oconomowoc Wisconsin 1960 ahh the good old days.

    Those were the days

    I remember in 1970, for a short while,there was a gas war. I had a 1964 GTO tri-power, (Three two barrel carbs)
    17 cents for regular and 23 cents for ethyl. A five dollar bill would just about fill the tank. A tank of gas and a six pack of Busch,made for a fun weekend.

    I bow to ya if you could get by on a 6- pack of Busch for the weekend. I remember the gas wars. Pull in and say fill er up and check the oil after you get the windshield and give 20 cents a gallon. Doug

    just for comparison, .31/gal gas in 1964 is the same price as 2.88/gal today....

    REAL dollars, REAL market worth $.31 in 1964 = $2.88 in 2020
