It’s official. I am a woman of a certain age. You know you are a person of a certain age when you start sentences with I remember when…
When I first had my license, a couple years ago…ahem, a gallon of gas was less than a dollar. To be exact, it cost me $.62 per gallon of gas. Whenever I borrowed Dad’s car, I had to put gas in it…so off to the service station I would go to have $1.00 worth of gas (1.62 gallons) pumped into the car before picking up my friends to go to the drive-in for a double-feature.
Times, they sure have changed. That same dollar would get me just over ¼ of a gallon of gas…that is 1 quart…or 2 pints…or 4 cups. No matter how you phrase it, it isn’t much gas. I doubt it would get me to the nearest drive-in theater now.
How much did gas cost when you were a new driver?
MAKE IT A GREAT DAY!
