    Our gas comes in liters, so I don’t even know what the price of gas is in gallons now.

    Multiply by 4.14, I assume you are referring to Imperial Gallons. I can remember when a gallon of super was about 50 cents.

    I felt the same way when gas briefly went down to $1.50 a gallon several years back.

    Alas. Chicagoland has the highest gas prices in the country, at around $4.25/gallon (more or less) for regular….

    4.55 litres = 1 imperial gallon
    3.79 litres = 1 USA gallon
    -——-
    The USA has a unique measurement system, it is not the same as the British.

    Also, the USA still has incredibly cheap petrol compared to the rest of the world.

    This was the 80s, you say? Never would’ve guessed.

    I worked in a gas station in the 60’s and the price was 19.9 cents a gallon. 5 gallons for under a dollar.

    Using the US gallon (3.79 litres), our cost is $4.40/gallon. And we have some of the lowest priced gas in Canada. $1.16/litre.

    The craziness still exists. Gasoline – a dangerous, toxic substance that has to be discovered, extracted and refined – is still cheaper than bottled water!

    Only cheap because we refuse to tax ourselves into poverty … yet!

    when I tried it, I couldn’t even get 1mpg on bottled water
    My roommate had this one taped to the refrigerator back in the 80’s, I recognized it from the first panel

    When I started driving gas was 35 cents a gallon and cigarettes were 35 cents a pack. A gallon and a pack are still priced the same? No gas is cheaper than cigs. Good thing I don’t smoke anymore.
