Imagine--I have seen gas for $.20 a gallon, coke out of a machine for a nickle, new loaded cars less than $2000, movies a dime. On the other hand I have worked for less than $1.00 an hour. I am riding no matter what it costs--SO FAR!



That was then, this is now?

I probably have fewer miles on the odometer than yourself, my wistful memories go back to 19 cent a gallon gas and 50 cents for a pack of Marlboros. I did tell our daughter I've seen an inflationary cycle or two but nothing like the current experience in my lifetime anyway......

If you "leave the country" you're far more likely to see HIGHER fuel prices, not lower.

I would not want to visit the places with low fuel cost let alone move there.

Thomas $.20 a gal was long after I had left home but I do remember Salems being $.25 out of the machine or $2.00 a carton. You know we had it made back then. I wish I could remember some of the prices I paid for cars in the late 50s as I had some nice ones, 58 Impala conv, 59 Impala Conv, 61 Corvette. Bought a 65 GTO for $2950 and a 66 442 Olds for about the same. I only remember the GTO because I still have it---others are just pictures and memories. Hope my oil and gas leases keep paying me and no one steals the 110 gal of diesel in my DP.
