    In early 2005 I remember paying $1.25. As a kid I can once remember my mom paying $1.01. I never paid much attention to it as I don’t drive much.

    @MsMamaBear: $20 can still go a long way if you have the right car. 🙂

    I’m in NJ…it was about $1.50 a gallon when I got my license in 2003. I’m paying about $3.30-$3.50 now…it’s been higher though!

    i live in northern california and we had gas prices under $1 when i first got my license in 1997 or so. i think we were paying .89 or .99 cents? i remember scoffing at the cheveron and thinking, “who’d pay more than a dollar for gas?!”

    jokes on me. especially since i just dropped $3.86 a gallon today!

    99 cents the first year I was driving (age 14, year 1997/1998). Then it went to $1.09 and stayed there for a a couple years. Been on the rise since then.

    I don’t recall how much gas was when I started driving, but I remember going to the same gas station in grad school and being miffed when they raised their prices to 95 cents on the weekends.  I think it was usually 89 cents during the week.  🙂

    I paid .69 for gas in Georgia when I was a freshman in college.

    Just passing the gas station today, 12 years later, gas is $3.53.

    Yeah…..the good ole days…..
