The Price Of Gas


I'm old enough to remember a time when I wouldn't fill up the tank if the price exceeded 50¢ a litre.  In the mid-nineties, this was entirely possible.  I was driving an '85 Ford Escort and she didn't get a drop until the sign said forty-something.  I was able to drive for quite a while abiding by this rule.

Today, we're paying twice that.  I'm seeing signs for 92¢ a litre.  I managed to pay a mere 86¢ a litre yesterday and I was happy to find it.  Prices have never been this high in this neck of the woods and we're bracing for the inevitable $1 a litre.
