I drove by the gas station last night and saw something that I haven’t seen in over 2 years…prices below $2 a gallon! It was $1.95 last night, and when I drove by the same station this afternoon, it was $1.93.
I can distinctly remember the last time I saw gas for $1.95 a gallon. It was Mother’s Day 2006 (or maybe it was 2005 – can’t remember!), and my family went to a restaurant in Westminster for dinner. There was a gas station across the street that was advertising regular unleaded (gee, remember when ‘regular’ and ‘unleaded’ used to be two different kinds of gasoline??? lol) for $1.95, and I thought, “Wow, there’s still 1 station out there that’s under $2.” After that, everything started to go up, and up, and up….It’s too bad that the economy had to tank (ha ha) to get us back to decent gasoline prices.
Every time I drive by the station now, I want to stop and fill up while the prices are still so low, but I still have half a tank!
