When I started driving there was a station that sold it for $0.90.
I could fill up for about $10.
That was 1992.
1.95 by me
Thank you, speculators!
I wonder how much tax revenue NY is loosing on these low prices...
One word: fracking
1.80????? That's high. 1.41 here.
Oil is trading significantly below where it can profitably be produced by fracking.
We're still over $2
I started driving in 1970.
gas was about 30 cents a gallon.
Friday night I drove past a place in NJ that was $1.45 (too crowded) and filled up @ $1.49. There was one station I saw that was at $1.80 for some reason, and it was the only joint that was a ghost town. Everywhere else I passed was $1.45-1.57.
When I think of a couple of years ago where between work and seeing my kid I was going through $200/wk in gas, I love this.
States usually charge x cents per gallon, not a percent, so low prices + increased comsumption = more revenue.
With my Kroger rewards points, I got it yesterday for .78
Pushing $3 here in Taxifornia.
Yeah, but are your roads and bridges falling apart?
i'm too old: it was 35 cents when i started...
used to be the best prices were on Rt 3 in Secaucus
