We’ve been over five bucks a gallon for a while now here in California. Then the other day I pulled into a gas station for this.
thoughts flitted through my head as I inhaled the fumes and emptied my bank
- Am I going to be able to get out of here for under a hundred bucks?
- Dear God, I’m old enough to remember paying 99 cents a gallon. (It was decades ago during college in the much cheaper Midwest, but still …)
- I’m now nostalgic for five dollars a gallon. There’s a sentence I never imagined I’d say.
- And, just to make myself feel better—it's still not as high as in L.A.
How much is it where you are?
