Gas was the equivalent of $3/gallon then.
Or we could be in Europe, where they're already paying the equivalent of $4-5US per gallon.
I don't like paying $2 a gallon, so I console myself with the fact that I don't have to run my car on milk.
And I limit my driving, which is all-around a good idea, no matter the cost of gas.

The largest increase I have ever seen in gas was 1999, and a gas president wasn't in office. That was when gas was still hanging around $1 a gallon.
That $ 0.59 increase was over a period of months. The $0.14 increase in my area happened over nite. That is what the big deal is about. Gas in my area has risen over $0.70 in the past 4 months. A much larger increase than in 1999.
