Gas Prices

Ahhh, the good ol' days . . . when you could buy fishing worms at the gas station, gas was 20 cents a gallon, and they came out and filled your car, washed your windshield, checked your oil and aired your tires. Now you fill your own car, and can buy lottery tickets, cigarettes and beer. Progress? . . . I think not.


  1. And today 'ME' gets about 2 cents per gallon, if not taking a loss in the hope you buy some snacks or a soft drink inside.

    1. Owning a gas station is a quick way to go broke. I felt sorry for the folks who had BP stations after the Big Oil Spill; the boycott hardly bothered the company, but closed a lot of small stations and put people out of work.

  2. I wish they would show the breakdown of taxes and fees like that. PA raised gas tax something like 20c a gallon last year. Perhaps people would vote differently. Gas in PA was already very expensive. I always say there is only one thing good about is the law that stations must be full serve.
