How about this?

I statred driving when I was 16, the cheapest I ever paid for gas was a 1.56 a gallon at the Phillips 66 in Oswego,IL. I am now 21 years old, and yesterday paid 3.89 a gallon for diesel fuel at the BP in Oswego,IL. Look at how much fuel prices have skyrocketed in only 5 years.

Out of curiosity, what was the cheapest price you guys ever paid for diesel, or gasoline when you hit the road. -Trevor

Did you notice an improvement in fuel economy when using the red? My '96 with 4.10 gears would get around 21-22 mpg on it and 18-19 on the regular. When I got rid of it, it would get 16-17 on hwy diesel at best.

Cheapest I have payed for gas was $.79/gallon. Cheapest for diesel, I don't recall.

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.

WOW, THAT`S AN HEIRLOOM, I EXPECT IT WILL HAVE TO BE MODIFIED WITH NEWER GUTS TO MAKE IT WORK OR MAYBE A MACHINE SHOP COULD DO IT BUT MAN WHAT A PRIZE. BET IT`S WORTH A PRETTY PENNY TO THE RIGHT COLLECTOR. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE ONE AGAIN, IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME.
