I photographed this pump on Route 66 in Staunton, Illinois. The meter had stopped at 49 cents per gallon. Alas, I pulled in a few years too late to top off my tank.

What’s the lowest price you’ve paid for petrol? I remember buying gasoline for 85 cents per gallon at a Mobil station in St. Louis, Missouri, circa 1987.

Can anyone do better than that?

Writing recap on Tuesday. See you then.
