You beat me. Lowest I paid was $0.199 during a gas war.

I remember driving with my Dad in 1962 and he bought gas for $.099. It was a gas war and across the street it was $.109.

I started driving a VW beetle in 1967. It had a 10 gallon tank and gas was around 25 cents a gallon. As long as I owned it, I was never able to put over 3 dollars worth of gas in it a one time

Well, $3 in 1967 is $21.29 today (per Inflation Calculator: Bureau of Labor Statistics ), and now I can't get $20 worth in my Insight's 10 gallon tank. And I can go maybe twice as far as that Beetle on 10 gallons- roughly 700 miles.

That beats me, I remember in the mid sixties when I was a teenager in South Alabama (gas war) gas got down to 11.9 Cents a gallon.

Nope...

If I'm converting it right, I paid last week the lowest for diesel I have seen.
About 4,1 dollar per gallon.

I used to just sign for it. You taxpayers were probably getting gouged, though, what with KBR's no-bid cost-based contracts.

And we got bad mileage.
