Cost of Gas when you were 16

I saw HEMIvore's post on the gas price discussion, and it reminded me about how much it used to cost to fill-up.


So, if you want, post how much it cost to fill up your tank when you were 16.


For me, my first vehicle was a '96 Ram 1500 4x4 360 I bought from my Dad. It had a 34-gallon tank and cost a little more than $40 to fill-up. This was only 6 years ago. My friends who drove S10's and Cavaliers could buy enough gas to drive all night for $5-10.



Now my 34-gallon tank costs $120 to fill up!

Gas was 25 to 30 cents a gallon when I was 16. A fill up was 4 or 5 bucks!

I was driving at 14, gas was 12/14c a gallon. Never brought gas by the tank, never had that much money then. Remember pushing my brothers ford(49) into gas stations to get gas. We would pool our money to get gas.

As I remember it was about 25 cents a gallon. And I always had differant cars so I am not quite sure what it cost to fill my tank.

Gas was usually $.21 to $.24 a gallon, but they had gas wars in those days. Got gas a few times at $.17 a gallon. No, most folks weren't still riding horses.
