During the gas war I sold fuel at an off brand station in around 69 or 70 for .19 a gallon [94 octane regular] and free glass tumblers with a fill up. With inflation equal to 1.30 today. Before the gas wars about .40 a gallon or 2.88 today.

I remember those glass tumblers.... didn't they have all the NFL team logo and names on them?

Shell Oil as I recall .33 a gallon

Not the NFL, was a Gull gas station. They were called Cave Man glasses or something like that, yellow orange in color and really irregular.  Still have a few at the lake cabin. Might have been a local promo, don't know.

If I would have filled up the BOSS 302 with the price of gas at $5.799/gallon, it would have cost over $100.  This brings back memories when I worked at a Chevron Station while attending college as the pump would turn over when it hit $99.99.  One day, someone came in with a truck with dual gas tanks and tried to tell me that he only put in $15 in gas, after spending a long time at the pump.  Fortunately, I was watching this guy fill up his truck and the gallons were still displayed on the pump and he had to pay $115.

Ah the good ole days. 1965 on vacation with my folks on our way to Reno NV from western NY. Mom was driving our 64 Merc wagon. Dad getting some shut eye in the back of the wagon. On interstate 80 west out of Salt Lake City Mom makes a wrong turn heading north, She says wake your Dad up I think we're lost. Dad says pull over in that gas station up ahead. We did and looks at the map to get our bearings. Dad says well while we're here let's fill up. 12 cents a gal. Gas war city. They had 3 tanker trucks parked out back loaded with gas. Filled the wagon up for $2. God I miss the 60s. :(

Back in 1974-75 my friend had a 1967 GT 500 with 2X4's and all. We'd scrounge up $2 or $3 and we would be ready to go for the night. MAN!!!

Dad used to take us car camping at Lundy Lake on the Eastern Sierra Nevada in the 1970s and we would stop for gasoline at a Chevron Station in nearby Lee Vining.  The owner would always come out and greet us as he remembered our 1966 Pontiac because I used to always clean the engine compartment and polish the inner fenders!

Back in the 60’s I would ride my Bonanza mini-bike through the woods and across the field, then walk it across the main intersection to the Gulf station on the other side.

I’d fill it up for about $0.15 and ride all day.

I miss the Bonanza as much as the price of gas from the old days…

I still have the 10-speed bicycle that I used to ride around before I got a car.
