    "When I was your age, I paid $2 a gallon for gas," said one old man to another who was only one year younger.

    I remember when I could buy gas for .25 a gallon any day of the week. When I left Texas in 1969, I filled up for .19 a gallon.

    And you also sat in the car while the attendant pumped it.

    I still do that in Oregon. You can fill your own vehicle if you drive a diesel, but by law, you are not allowed to pump your own gasoline. It always throws me for a loop when I drive up to Washington, and almost always have a "what the hell, where are the attendants" moment, before hopping out to pump my own gas.

    I remember gas being around 55ยข a gallon in the late 1970's. I thought that was high.
