Waiting for Gasoline

I don't know if any of you would remember waiting in line for gasoline back in the 70's but I did that today for a very short time.  I arrive to get in line about 12:55pm today for $2.98 a gal. gas but so did everyone else that wasn't at their job.  The police were already there directing traffic.  Now I thought once I got up to the pumps it would be easy.  Nope.  You had to go inside to pay to get the discount.  So that was taking everyone much longer.
Waiting in line for about 20 minutes.

Driving away with full tank, looking back at others still waiting.

Hope you were able to stay cool and hydrated today.  Tank-up tomorrow maybe worst.  Terry


  1. How much did you save?? Cause I am not a patient person and I think I would go wacko waiting for gas that long. You were always more patient than I.........
    Stay cool my dear friend and see ya Saturday.

    1. Saved $4.10, the limit was 10 gallons. Waited 20 minutes. My limit was 30 minutes of waiting then I would have moved on to getting groceries. As it developed, I drove that car today and it had a miss in it. I feel the gas was watered down. The car ran fine before. See you Saturday.
