With the competition from across the street on most corners with
stations, I could pretty well fill up my '49 Willy Jeepster for four or
five bucks, get a few extra drops out of the nozzle for my Zippo, and
score an aluminum "glass" to boot.
And didn't even have to get out of the seat ...
I remember "gas wars", where the stations would lower their price to
grab some action. Lowest I recall was .09. And you got green stamps or
a free glass with a fill up.
There was a free market then.
Those days are long gone.
I've always believed that you wake up, roll both legs over the edge of
the bed, both tootsies touch the floor, and both lungs are working,
you have a shot at another day.
Anything else is bonus money.
