What’s the lowest price of gas you can remember?

I worked in a gas station too when I was 16. Back then in 78 it was about .55 - .60 / gallon. I remember when it started approaching a dollar. I never though it would get there. When it did, our pumps were mechanical so we had no way of putting a dollar on the pump. We had to half the price on the pump then double the cost. Working during the second gas crisis was not fun either. Odd and even plates and long lines and very cranky people. I also had to do the oil checking, windshield washing and tire pressure checking. Our station also did repairs. This was in New Jersey were they still don't allow people to pump their own gas.

Opinion: Climate change as a moral issue

CFC's haven't been used in aerosol cans since 1978. I'm amazed people still don't know this.

Lawrence's Red Lyon Tavern, a haven for soccer folk, gears up for World Cup

There may be other places to go downtown that show soccer games. There are none with a staff that shares the same passion for the game as the patrons though. At the Lyon they open early to show soccer games not just show them when they are open.

It was midnight when the MLS cup arrived, the Red Lyon was so packed you could hardly move around. In my almost 40 years of being a soccer fan, I can't remember having a better time in a better place with a better group of people.

Fix-It Chick: Replace a cast-iron pipe

I have to agree with everything you said. My dad was a master plumber and I worked with him for years. Back when we use to install this type of pipe, tucking in oakum and pouring the lead. These pipes are deceptively heavy, even small sections.
