yippee on gas price
« on: February 14, 2020, 05:43:22 AM »
Yippee... 

Here in Raleigh, NC the price for regular has dropped to as low as $1.97, and premium (93 octane) as low as $2.55.   I remember back in 1970 when i bought my first E-body, the price for regular was $.45...   

But...  back then my starting out of college job payed $7,000 a year...today starting jobs are in the $40-50 K range...   so adjusting for inflation $1.97 is CHEAPER than the gas was back then !!

I used to buy Sunoco 260, which had an octane rating of 102 (old rating scale)  for 36 cents a gallon in 1970. There was also Sunoco 280; but that is another story. Then and again, I'm old

Diesel here in Raleigh area is typically in the $2.80-$3.20 range...   I believe yesterday it was at $2.89

Wow...after reading some of those $6 a gallon quotes, yes i am lucky here in Raleigh, NC.   Good thing also since my 408 only gets between 8-10 mpg...   Haven't had a chance to check it yet, now that i have the overdrive A518 and locking torque converter...   Hoping for around a 20-30 % increase in mpg.
