Yesterday I paid $2.199 per gallon of gas! I never thought I’d see the day that I got excited over $2.199. When I first started pumping gas into cars and using my own money to buy it, I think gas was either $0.58 or $0.68 per gallon. The guy sharing my pump last night said he remembered gas being 20 cents a gallon but also that his wage was $1.60 per hour.
I am still confused as to why we never saw $4 or $5 per gallon like “the they” claimed would happen with the pipeline shutdown.
