Long lines form after $1.10-a-gallon LA gas goof
Would've been a fine prank though, a couple of radio DJ's made up an Aprils fools joke involving a gas station once that pretty much stopped the traffic in our capitol Helsinki.
It wasn't for the gas price though, but a blow-out of beer and cigarettes. IIRC hundreds of drivers showed up, jamming one of the main roads pretty firmly.
Price marked is price paid. If he would have just kept his mouth shut, I'll bet his gas station would get a lot more traffic. Drivers may think that it could happen again and stop in.
WHERE WAS I WHEN THIS HAPPENED?????!?!?!?!?!
< sigh >
I remember when it was $1.10 for real. I could fill my Ford Escort for $15 and get two weeks of driving out of that.
That was only about 15 years ago or so, iirc.
Hope it goes viral at all stations across the country.
Clinton era, I believe. Or maybe Bush Sr. But I've kind of lost track.
Suffice to say, my income has not increased on pace with the price of gas or many other necessities in the time since. Not even effin close.
Yup, when I first started driving in the mid 90s it wasn't uncommon for gas to be around $.89 or so per gallon... you could get enough gas to cruise around for hours off of the change in the floorboards of the car.
ughhh, I picked the exact wrong time to not be driving through LA.
Perhaps the gas station has the same person working for it who priced Eden Navigators for $200 on MF a while back.
Why can't this happen around here!!!
Happened here a few years ago at a station two miles from my house. I took every truck I owned up there and filled them up @ $1.16 a gallon.
