What is the cheapest you can remember ever paying for a gallon of gas?

Around .89 or so?
Yep. My dad has the picture to prove it too. His brothers in Cali didn't believe him.

OMG yeah, it was about .89 6 years ago , then up to about $1.20...

This current gas price inflation crud is killing just about everything....

I am so lucky I ride my KLR to work at 60 MPG...

It's kinda hard to say how much gas was when I was in high school, I didn't have to pay for it. My family used to own a large auto parts warehouse and I would go to a customer that had a real service station and sign a ticket for the gas. At the end of the month they sent the tickets to my grand father, who issued a credit to their account with us.

For some reason, .83 a gallon at QuikTrip right after I first started driving comes to mind.

It was .78 a gallon in 1995 when I first moved to Georgia up off of Jimmy Carter (Spit).
In Pensacola in the '80's I can remember it as low as .75.

.23.9 for regular and .25.9 for Ethyl...



For you youngsters out there, Ethyl was the trademarked name of the lead compound added to gasoline to make higher octane premium gas that was required by those old 10:1 and 11:1 compression ratio engines. Also called an anti-knock compound.

That was back in the day when the only cars with fuel injection were Corvettes and the very rare Chevy sedan. Everything else used those funny things that sat on top of the intake manifolds that any high school kid could adjust....

70 cents, I could fill up a ten gallon tank, buy a coke and a pack of cigarettes with a $10 bill. Ahhh those were the days.
