Re: Gas Prices - Ugh!!!!!!

I paid $2.53 per gallon for regular unleaded a couple of days ago.  The price has been hanging around this level....+/- 10 cents for quite a while.

 

I have a little car expense log book that I was keeping back around 1962 to 1966....and, at one time, I was paying 17.9 cents per gallon for regular leaded gas.  If I remember right it was during a local gas war.  Haven't had one of those in years.

On one notable occasion....just as the space shuttle was about to lift off....one U.S. astronaut turned to the one in the seat next to him and commented, "And just remember...you're sitting on top of $100 million worth of parts manufactured by the lowest bidder." A real confidence builder, eh?
