  • I remember when I could fill my gas tank off of $20. And that was just 3 years ago :~( Last summer I was spending $50 to fill the same tank.

  • Yeah, but back then that was a lot of money! It wasn't like we thought that was cheap at the time! My Grandfather remembers when candy bars were a dime, but once again to them that was a lot of dough at the time!
