Out of curiosity, what was the cheapest price you guys ever paid for diesel, or gasoline when you hit the road. -Trevor
IN 1941 THE YEAR WWII STARTED, GAS WAS 18 CENTS A GAL IN LAGRANGE GA.
AND THE PUMPS WERE GRAVITY AND THEY HAD A HANDLE ON THE SIDE TO PUMP GAS UP INTO A ROUND GLASS CONTAINER AT THE TOP WITH LINES MARKED AROUND THE GLASS FOR EACH GAL YOU PUMPED UP TO 10 GAL. THEN YOU SIMPLY PUT THE HOSE INTO THE TANK AND LET GRAVITY PUT IT IN FOR YOU. NO ELECTRICTY ON PUMPS BACK THEN. AHHH THE GOOD OLE DAYS. HA, SOME OF YOU OUT THERE KNOW WHAT I`M TALKING ABOUT.
