Small tank, huh?

Thor, I filled my 1973 Toyota for less than $3.00 before the 1973 energy crisis.

Ahhhh, yes!  I remember some friends and I pooling together 46 cents for a gallon+ of gas at a Hess station in 1972 in order to be able to drive around aimlessly (well, the "destination" back then was always the "ozone") in a 1966 Buick Special for a few more miles.

When I first got my drivers license driving by myself was a real treat. Because my dad drove over a hundred miles round trip to work & back everyday, filling up his '73 VW Bug was a nightly after dinner ritual that he was more than happy to allow me to perform on his behalf.
 
There was a Hess station about 4 miles or so from our house that had the cheapest gas in town. I could get a half a tank for right around the $2 he'd give me, (often times with a little change left over) at the whopping price of 27.9 ยข per gallon.
