Gas prices pic from back then...80% off

A trip down musclecar memory lane. The date- April 12, 1979. I had just purchased a 1971 Olds 442 with 40K on the clock that very day and drove it to work right after signing the papers...I worked at the Amoco station by the highway then (so gas was actually a bit lower in town), just turned 19 a few days before that. Just thought I'd share...sorry for the crappy pic, but it's a 29 year-old polaroid that spent a lot of time in a shoebox in the closet. I was really just taking a picture of my "new" car, but just happened to get the gas price in there, too.

Who'd have thought it'd be 5 times that today?

Great picture. You should go take a picture of what that exact location looks like today.
