Yup, I'd say right around 1990/1991. I got my driver's lisence in 1988 and regular unleaded was about 85 cents.
Oh, is this the part where we're all supposed to blame Bush for fuel prices? A very popular bumper sticker I see all the time now is this......
"When Bush took office gas was $1.46 a gallon."
Ummmm, yeah? So? When Democrats took Congress majority, gas was $2.20 a gallon..... so whats the friggin point? Democrats always looking to blame the Republicans for something (or more accurately, looking to blame Bush), even when it makes NO SENSE WHATSOEVER.
edit: Greg, NONE of that was directed at you..... just a typical politically-chraged outburst courtesy of ETR.
Was cruising E street in San Bernardino in the 60's -- Had a blown BBF in my 60 ford truck -- and not any BBF a 427 Cammer motor -- with all 27 foot of timing chain -- use to go to Victory Gernsey below Baseline on Waterman and fill up with Premium for $0.249 a gallon
The guy that started the Super Shop chain was selling speed parts to us out of his trunk of his car at this time.
a night of cruising and street racing would cost me almost $8.00 in gas which was a lot in '67. Had girls that would pay for the evenings gas so they could ride with me crusing and racing-- lost a lot of girlfriends because someone else was willing to pay for the gas for the evening, so I'd take them and leave the girfriend home LMAO
