Rico,  The bottom sign mentions April 2011.  Misprint or closed station?  I'll take the free burgers and beer.

 

On one street in Indy, a closed station displayed 98.9 for years and countless numbers of drivers tried to turn into the barricaded station. Smiley Wink  I almost did, the first time but the prices that day at oipen stations were just above a dollar.

I think Rico has a habit of photoshopping signs, LOL!

 

.98 would sound cheap now, but would have been high in the olden days (when they gave away free drinking glasses, steak knives, stamps to save/redeem for goods).  I can remember gas wars when prices were in the teens...I am old. Smiley Sad

Re: Gas Prices - Ugh!!!!!!

Know what you mean Spd and I worked at a gas station when only 17. Gal of gas, or pack of cigs, take your pick at 26 cents each. Little returnable bottles of coke were a dime. Plus we gave out free steak knives & other freebies with a fill-up, as you mentioned, but hardly gave any away. A fill-up was waaay too expensive. Smiley Very Happy

 

But if you had the money for a fill up we would clean all the windows, check/top all the fluids, put air in the tires, etc.. Full service instead of no service. Smiley Wink

 

Between $3.80 - $3.85 here. Smiley Mad

Re: Gas Prices - Ugh!!!!!!

By the time I got behind the wheel, gas was around 1.50 for reg. I think there was the beginning of self service and only one "full service" pump with the price always just a little higher...to have someone pump the gas for you. Thats all they did too. Kind of remind me how kids today never seen the good ole days of albums/vynle but only know cds, dvd, htv, drv, w.i.i. Ask'em about mtv and they laff. The only wii WE knew about were the three Bacon bros that used to git bullied by the Wolf boys . Smiley Very Happy

Smiley Very Happy  I think most kids don't know about CDs, only mp3s and streaming (and Torrents). Smiley Sad  They know about DLP theaters and IMAX, and mostly stream or download movies (why ATT is going to start capping us...j/k!).  It's a whole different world.

 

A few stations around town will give a cash discount, remember those?  But they don't advertise it openly until you pull up and read the fine print.  Mostly Valero and Phillips 66 that I've seen.  Who carries that MUCH cash to fill up their tank today? Smiley Sad

I can not understand why the oil companies don't see this as a bad thing with the economy in the shape its in

like this is not adding more coffin nails to the overall problem.

Drove into one station here in Detroit yesterday and prices were 4.01 per gallon.  I drove back out and found one where I paid 3.95.Smiley Surprised

You know what blows?  When you pay $3.63 / gal, like I did yesterday and think that you are getting a bargain.  Smiley Surprised Smiley Sad  It was $3.69-3.79 just 5 blocks away.   It wasn't out of my way to save $1.50 but I was a bit afraid that i would run out before I got there.  The free Gasbuddy app saved the day and $1.50. Smiley Wink
