That could have been possible in lower price gas area since the price of a barrel of oil was about $10 at different times during the 1990s. Each $10 for oil is about 30 cents per gallon plus refining and distribution costs at the pump.

$2.85 is the cheapest I've seen in my town but as they're robbing gits here who hike prices fast but drop them slow I've no doubt it's cheaper in a neighboring town.

I refuse to call it cheap gas though, it's simply less extortionate.
