    You know, you're probably right... 19 cents was when there were "gas wars", and I was still mowing lawns for money. I bet it was more like 25 cents when I started driving, cause I remember being told it was going up to 75 cents, and I thought that was absolutely ridiculous.

    That is only because you are getting old. I remember that too.

    If I recall it was only in the "gas wars" where we got down below 20.

    ETA: Missed your post saying the same thing, CP.

    It always gets me that gas prices are expressed as x.xx.9 -- I remember when a tax was added to gasoline, and it did not end in "point nine", yet the next day, all gas stations STILL had their prices posted with "point nine" as the last part.

    Have you EVER seen a gas price displayed as anything OTHER than ending in "point 9"?

    I remember green stamps! The supermarket where I grew up gave them.

    The lowest gas price I remember, though, was .799 right after Gulf War I. I just paid $2.68/gal to fill up a couple days ago.

    I'm trying to remember if the .x was used during the gas war... like 19.4 cents as opposed to 19.8 or something.

    It is often .0 or .5 here. Sometimes .4, too.
