Ahhh…the good ol’ days!!!
Remember the good ol’ days? Many of us recall when gas prices were a lot less than what we are seeing these days when we pull up to the pump. You’ve heard stories about how low they used to be. 1919-Gas was 25 cents a gallon. 1946-It was at 27 cents. 1974-Average gas price went above 50 cents for the first time in the United States. 1980-Average price above $1 per gallon. March 2000-Average price more than $1.50 per gallon. July 2008-Gas prices spiked to more than $4 per gallon. I can remember pulling up to the pumps, filling up with $10.00 worth of regular, and it would last you a week! Presently, the lowest price in the Sedalia area is around $3.18 a gallon. Do you think those prices will still go lower or do you think we’ll see an upswing in prices? Of course, gasoline is made from crude oil. I think Jed Clampett was right when he called it “Black Gold”!!!
