Folks don’t remember .29 ethyl.
It doesn’t matter anymore. Shale explosion find in the Dakota’s. Doesn’t matter.
What are you paying at the pump.................
During one “gas war” on Long Island the price of leaded regular was 19.9 cents per gallon in the early 1970’s down from 24.9 cents.
Heh. I used to pump ethyl.
I was paying $.13 a gallon when I was in high School and I had our own tanks in my business and until 1974 we were paying $.29/gallon.
The ‘crisis” in 74 was caused by an article in the L.A. Times that got everyone to run to the gas station and fill their tanks which emptied the station tanks,.
Everyone in the country that was getting bulk delivery gasoline had been on rationing since 1972 so when the stations went empty they couldn't buy any more until the next month.
THERE WAS NEVER ANY SHORTAGE!!!
I remember .29 ethyl. And it was .27 on sale. I named my Oldsmobile “Ethyl” because she sure liked ethyl more than regular.
