Exactly, one of my employees moved from Pueto Rico in 1999, he was reminiscing the other day that gas in Atlanta when he moved here was $.89/gallon then. Not far from the pre-fuel crisis price of the 1970's.
As you said, I doubt we will ever see that kind of price again, but I do believe we will probably see, say, $2.399 again. It's just a matter of looking at it as part of the cost of living for our daily work commutes. In time that will be viewed as normal and RV's sales and full sized SUV sales will return to what they were a year ago. Motorhomes and tow vehicles have to be viewed as luxury items. Unfortunately, not everyone can afford them, but for those who can, it just means a little more expense for those luxuries.
