Wordless Wednesday: Fill 'er Up

 

Back when a tank of gas didn't cost more than groceries.

I'm not sure what year this is from...it's definitely before my time (and I can't say that a lot lately). 😄

It is appropriately located just outside of the Antique Car Museum in Put-in-Bay, Ohio

  4. I remember when I first started driving, gas was only $0.99 a gallon. Gone are the days. I wonder how much it costed when that antique pump was in use?

  7. I can remember gas at 19.9 cents per gallon and my father complaining about how high it was. Times never change.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥

  12. The price of gas has given me anxiety these past few days. I know that soon basic commodities will also increase in price. Wish we could all go back to the time when life was easier.

  36. This is pretty cool. I like old things.

    I'm glad I don't have to go to work every day, but I still take Isaak to school. That's to, back, pick-up and back again.

    When I start to think about how high it is, I try and think about how glad I am that I don't live in Russia or the Ukraine right about now.
