We had gas here in Nebraska for 25.9 in the early 60s when I started to drive. Occasionally they would have "gas wars" and price went down to 18.9 for just an afternoon or so. Of course we had a refinery here at that time which might have helped keep our price down.
My Dad said during the mid to late 30s gas in town was 18 cents but bulk delivery to the farm was half price or 9 cents. Now they tack on at least a nickel a gallon.

Looking to buy or trade old gas station memorabilia such as pumps, globes, cans, signs, free give-aways, S&P shakers etc. from the 20s-60s.
