I can give you a little history on the subject.In the 1960s I worked in my dad's service station in the summertime pumping gas. I remember the gas wars,where it was 29 cents a gallon across the street and 30 cents a gallon at the opposite corner. I remember getting my hump busted by a customer that filled up with premium leaded gasoline at 44 cents a gallon."It's hyway robbery,it should be illegal." Then in 1973 my dad and I went to the L.A. area to pick up some tires for his station. We got caught in a gas line. Could only get 15 gallons maximum and watched two guys almost go to blows over a spot in the line.The country didn't learn then. In 1977 the oil embargo brought odd ,even license plate rationing. People with two cars who just happened to have one odd and one even plates were swithcing plates to gas up. We didn't learn then either. What's it going to take? 10.00 a gallon, 20.00 a gallon?
