That's good, right?

I say that because according to this conversion site, I just filled up my tank at US$4.40 a gallon.

I was pleased, since earlier this week, I paid US$4.62 per US gallon.

Isn't it sad what we rejoice over as cheap fuel?

I remember $3 filling up the tank on my little Chevy Vega.

Our car is diesel and our truck is gas. Go figure.

How is diesel cost? Maybe I need to start driving the truck more.

When I was in college I drove a Honda 175 - would only exceed 55mph downhill with the wind at my back. Acceleration due to gravity over the edge of a cliff would get it going pretty good too.

Gas was 33 cents a gallon, and many service stations didn't lock the pump handles down at night, so you could literally drain a pint of gas from the hose of a stopped pump for ... well don't get caught. (There were no credit card operated pumps.)

A 3.5 gallon tank cost slightly over $1 to fill. But minimum wage was $1.25 so it took an hour's labor to get that tank legally filled. Diesel was $.22 cents a gallon, but only BIG trucks and a few Mercedes Benz' cars were diesel. It was (and is still) a less refined fuel. Why does it now cost SO much more than regular gas?

Oh if I could time travel and fill my tank in 1968 - and drive it in 2013. Of course I'd be scarfing up real silver dimes, quarters and silver dollars too.

Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

I'm in central NJ, and no, it's not cheap, just the lowest in forever, We all know we pay far too much for a gallon of gas because of outside factors, just too many influences from our friends who dislike the internal combustion engine (hope thats non-political enough) that want it to go away. In time, like horse drawn carriages it will, hopefully not in my lifetime. BTW, I still get chills when I'm next to a steam engine pulling a train, a Diesel locomotive, by comparision, does not raise an eyebrow. Cheap fuel rules, for a moment! (relative) John
