Actually I lived through the 60's. Gas was $0.32 a gallon most places and you got full service at the pump. Then the Arab Oil Embargo hit in 1973 and it went to $1.20 (or so) overnight. Four fold increase, that really hurt. I solved that problem by buying a smaller car and driving less. It was an immediate, effective solution.

Here in Vegas, there is no shortage of Escalade, Navigator, F350 (and larger)etc, and yet people complain.

I don't want to hear a word out of any politician on the high price of gas. If they really cared, they could cut all the taxes out gas and prices would plummet.
