What's the Cheapest you've EVER Paid for Gas?
 
The best I can remember, when I started driving gas was around 77 cents a US gallon. Your turn.

I started buying gas during a price war — 25/gallon. When it went back up to 27 I was outraged.

...later I started thinking that was kind of funny. Allowing for inflation, that would be $2.10 today. A gallon is the same size, but the dollars are getting smaller.

0. A few times a construction site I used to guard let me fill up with their gas for free.

$.549/gal. Used our fuel discount last week and filled both cars.

Paid $1.51/gal today at Sam's Club in Huntsville, AL. I've only been driving since 2012 so sub $2.00/gal gas is not something I've often experienced.

Far into the future, your great grandkids' eyes will pop out when you tell them that and they will ask, "What's gas, Grandpa?"

Yep, just look up "inflation-adjusted gas price".

If you shop at grocers that offer it. We generally shop Aldi and Kroger

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:)

Pumped gas for my hs job. it was .33 for the longest 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.

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

Fat Charlie 01-25-2016 10:56 AM

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.

gone-ot 01-25-2016 07:02 PM

17 per gallon at Naval Station Argentia, Newfoundland, 1965, at Navy PX gas station.

me and my metro 01-25-2016 07:06 PM

Gas was about .299 when I started to drive in 71.:D
