Default Re: Gas Prices

Back in the OPEC oil embargo of 1973, people were freaking out when gasoline prices climbed to crazy heights, sometimes higher than $1.00/gallon! I remember that some gas pumps couldn't handle prices above 99 cents because they didn't have a dollars digit on the display. To keep the price in a manageable numerical range, some gas stations started pricing their gasoline by the liter instead.
