Between 1984 to 1986, gas price was between $1.25 to $1.75 then later dropped to 79 cents in 1988 to 1989. I recalled that price when I rode Moped and filled tank in 1984. In 1989. 79 cents a gallon was so cheap because I filled gas on 1977 Toyota Corolla for $6. 1967 Chevy C10 pickup, $12.

In the 1970s the price of gas was $0.36 till price increased under $1 because reason of oil crisis from Arab countries.

Yes, I remmy Oil Crisis back in 1973. I was with my dad when we went to line up for gas. I can't remember exactly the price of gas but yes it was less than $1.

Right. During I was young, I can afford cheap gas at 39 cents before 1973. I had paid $5 for fill up gas for some V8 big car. Now I paid $45 for my 4 line SUV. I wish to be back to the past.

My impression is, if you're less than 30yrs old, you're not invited to post here. everyone's talking about 50's, 60's and 70's. It kind of makes me feel like a toddler

I've been driving since 1973. I remember gas for under $1 at full-service stations. In 1973, I had a VW bug convertible, automatic, so I spent very little money on gas.

I remember what a shock it was when the price of gas hit $1. Gas stations had to tape paper prices on the pumps because they didn't even make them with enough spaces for gallon amounts over 99 cents.

If high prices weren't enough, they also had a plan for rationing gas. If your license plate ended in an even number, you could get gas only on even number days. Odd number plates got gas on odd number days.

Also, to get gas, sometimes we had to wait in long lines that stretched onto the roads. Some people ran out of gas and had to push their cars along to the pumps. Sometimes the stations ran out of gas. Whoa! That was bad!

Some gas stations don't allow you to fill your own tank due to state or local law, such as Oregon. Not quite "full-service."

Ouch! What's happen after that? Diesel engine can't ignite at all?

I wonder they pour the washer in the coolant reservoir or add motor oil in the ATF transmission.

I think it ran like shit for a couple of weeks. His insurance replaced the engine at a cost of several thousand dollars.

We need a wages comparison too. And perhaps housing prices. It's all relative.

Won't happen. We start trading oil with Russia, and you will see Mr. Putin with big smile.
