    Really? Wow! That was pretty good getting the price down to $1.84 when he left office then!
    :rofl:
     
  5. It jumped up for around a day when the towers got hit. Then the stations got in trouble for price gouging.
     
  6. Yeah, no kidding. On my way home I saw a local convince store, I used to work at, had bumped the prices up to over $5/gal. We were at $4 or just below for awhile when bush was In. I remember think of the frog boiling while seeing the gas prices and thinking bush was paying his oil cronies back. True or not, it's still what I thought.

    There has already been discussion on this the other day.

    The marketplace determines gas prices, not the president.

    I was being sarcastic......:faint:
     
  9. Come on folks. Don't any of you remenber seeing gas at 11 cents a gallon? But that was back when stations had gas wars.
     
  10. I can go back to about 18.9/ gal. and windows got cleaned also. Didn't take a lot of $$$ to fill up my 63 1/2 Galaxie 500 XL. Dang I wish I still had that car.:crying:
     
  11. I remember paying over $5 for diesel. When your company run trucks with 200-gallon tanks, it adds up.

    The difference is, during Bush presidency we had work for those trucks, so spending several hundred dollars at the gas pump wasn't that big of a deal.
     
  12. I remember gas wars very well. Oh, wouldn't you LOVE to have them again! :wow:

    I loved the era of the gas wars. I was in So. Cal during all that in the early '60s and I once got reg for 7 cents per gallon. I was driving a little Chevy Corvair Monza and I couldn't get a dollars worth in it.
