    ... Yielded two gasoline receipts. Stuffed under the seat.

    January 4th, 1980 $1.01 per gallon
    January 25th, 1980 $1.13 per gallon

    That's a helluva hike. Tenafly NJ and Engle Cliffs (?) NJ.


    Just thought I would share.

    Right after it.


    Gas crisis occured in '78.


    Gas prices did fall off in the mid-90's B. I remember when 87octane gas was 89cents during nineteen ninety-something. Probably 1994-97ish.

    I remember that from when I was little. I recall telling my dad that one gas station was crazy for thinking they could sell gas for 0.89. Funny, I would say the same thing today.

    Sidenote: A reciept from 1980? How often do you clean your car? I feel I'm slacking when I find anything over 2 months old. That piece of paper you hold is older than ME!

    $2.99 for the shit gas here.

    (enter old-timer voice here) "Way back when I was a kid Gasoline was 88 cents a gallon!"

    Well, that was the best price I've ever seen anyway, and that was mid 90's.
