Gas Prices…

My “Low Fuel” light came on this morning, so I swung by the gas station to fill up. As I pulled in, I saw the sign: Unleaded $3.49 9/10. Who are they kidding? Gas is now $3.50 per gallon. I couldn’t believe it!

I remember stopping by the gas station with my mom in the 70s. The little bell rang, and someone came out to pump the gas, clean the windshield, and check the oil. And gas cost under $0.50 per gallon.

Then in the 80s, self-serve gas started to emerge, and the price began rising. And as time went on the price continued to rise, and rise, and rise…And here we are today. No service and expensive gas. Maybe it’s time for me to get a hybrid…

Stay groovy…
