I was going through some old digital photos recently (by old, I mean up to 6 years at max; let’s face it, that’s old for a digital photo) and stumbled across the photo there on the right of a gas station we stumbled across while in San Diego in March of 2003.
It was the first time that I had been to California and had to worry about putting gas in my own car, and I distinctly remember seeing the Chevron station and being amazed by the price. I’m pretty sure that I handed Diann the camera and then made a (possibly illegal) u-turn to make sure we got a snapshot. In my photo gallery, the caption for that picture is "Ye gads that is expensive gas".
Here we are, four-and-a-half years later, and I only wish I could get gas that cheap. Current average price in my slice of the states is $3.16 for the "cheap" stuff.
