I've always had to pay for Premium, so my numbers are a little skewed, but I can remember it around 60 something cents when I was in high school.

$0.39 in Atlanta back in 1999...was doing a cross country road trip. Those 15,000 miles would have cost a fortune in today's gas prices.

My cheapest was also Atlanta in 1997. Don't remember the exact number, but it was in the $0.60 range.

I was in Atlanta for 6 years 1995-2001... def cheapest gas in Georgia b/c they are missing that gas tax. .29 I think was the lowest but regularly .89. Usual fill-up was under $15. I once thought it was OUTRAGEOUS to fill up my employers Suburban for $35.

I now live in L.A. and am happy to just fill up sub $4.

Was just in Venezuela in sept, filled a SUV below 'E' for under $1; filled a speed boat, not sure how many gallons but took me about 25 min to fill and that was $3.....

Cheapest I remember in NY 89 cents I think..... now hovering close to $4 gas and for my diesel 3.99 - 4.25

Grew up in Europe where gallon always hovered around $4 in 80s

In the early 80's during a spring break a bunch of us road tripped to a couple of Dead shows. The budget for fuel was less than a 1/3 of the beer budget. Think how skewed the other direction that is now.

We were actually all on a canadian ales/lagers kick so the cooler was full of labatts, molsen. moosehead etc. Maybe it's just the region I'm in but those seem to be rarely available anymore. Back then every supermarket and 7/11 carried them.

Hmm. Most of the people I knew that went to GD concerts budgeted for other things besides beer.

When i turned 16 in 1999 i remember gas being around .78 in NC. I just kept going up ever since. My first car was a mazda 626 and i could fill it up for 11 bucks and drive it for over a week.

Of course you could buy a pack of camels when i was 16 for 2 bucks. NC loves its bacco.
