No. Probably late 60's, early 70's. I remember 25 cents, and I was being driven to and from swim practice around then and staring out the window of the car.

I can remember the gas price war between two Stations in Crown Point when I was a kid. One was at .18, the other at .19. Cheapest I ever paid was .41.

19.9 cents a gallon and they checked your air, water and oil level, cleaned your front and back windshields, gave you a bar of soap, a glass and trading stamps.

19 cents per gallon, circa 1968 or so.
Link Posted: 2/2/2006 7:50:28 PM EST
Well for me It was .20.1
That was a off brand station that got their gas for tne bottom of everyones tanks. In my Ford 1969 Falcon with a 200 ci inline 6 the stuff was great in town. hit a hill and the engine pinged like hell. thats when you stopped at the nearest station and got the "high" octane at .22.9 per gal .
The damn car got 32 mpg on the cheep stuff.

I can remember my Dad giving me a quarter to take the gas can down to the station and fill it up.
Link Posted: 2/2/2006 7:58:40 PM EST
He might have gave .25 cents but i cant see how that would full er up

Low 30¢/gallon range in the mid-1960s.

I remember 35¢/pack cigarettes.
Link Posted: 2/2/2006 8:13:58 PM EST
Early '50s. 11.9 for Reg. 14.9 for "Ethyl"
Link Posted: 2/2/2006 8:18:29 PM EST
I remember that a coke was $.15, gas was about $.23/gal, movies were $3.50, and a new Corvette was $6,000 (which seemed like $48k looks today ).

Dad, before he died, used to tell me that he'd take a quarter out of his savings and see a movie, get a hot dog, and a Coke.

On the same quarter! This is perhaps 1943 or so.

Ain't inflation a bitch?
