    Nah, $2.38 in 2010 dollars. And yes, inflation is part of the algorithm that is often ignored...

    "If gas goes over 50 cents a gallon, we are walking everywhere!".... My Mom, in the 70's
    "If gas goes over a dollar a gallon, we are walking everywhere!".... My Mom in the 80's

    yeah, my mom doesn't walk anywhere except store to store in a mall. :lol:


    I recall when sodas went for Two dimes to a whole quarter.
    "That's not fair!! It's highway robbery!"... Me, standing in front of a soda machine with Two dimes, no nickles, and needing a quarter.

    Rising gas prices: 'When is it going to stop?'...

    Rising gas prices hurt most small businesses, but sometimes they help others.
    See also:

    Orlando gas station charges $5.69 a gallon
