in Oklahoma, or at least it looks similar to a gas station my dad owned back in 1958. I remember gas was about $25 cents a gallon.

Wow, you're old. I only remember gas being 40 cents a gallon, though I have reached the age and can say to some adults "I have been doing (...) since you were in diapers". I have yet to tell any kids to get off my lawn.

I remember $0.20 per gallon, but I am old too! (grin) It's sad that today milk is cheaper than gas, can you imagine that? Now, some folks claim the price of gas is high due to the dollar being weak to the Euro, and in Europe, they claim that gas is cheaper due to the Euro being strong against the dollar, but how come the gas companies are making record, billion dollar profits--something's wrong with this picture--not the one posted of course.

Thanks for sharing, my apologies for venting, life has been so tuff for everyone lately, that we need a great, relaxing image like this one to look at. Thanks, rg sends!

Thank you.

Actually I can remember gas about 18 cents a gallon, back when we moved to Arkansas in 1952.

Here is an old Plymouth (I think)... I would guess 1947. Plymouths, Dodges, and Chryslers were never popular with kids back then.. they were "old folks" cars. Could probably fill 'er up with gas for about $5.

Re: Old Gas station 
Great photo of the service station. The light in the billowing clouds verses the stark landscape brings back memories of my youth. I was reminising with my brothers and Dad just this past weekend. As a kid going to work with him, how gas was $.06 a gallon when the family owned a string of DX stations through the mid west. Times a sure different, but you know what. A excellent photo is still in vogue. Nice work!

Thank you for the comments. This is one of my wife's favorites and she wants it for the kitchen. I do not thin it is a "kitchen" photograph..

I have printed some sunflower photographs she made, and those just say, "Kitchen", to me.. hehehe
