Bowl Games Day, a lot of college football on television today. Yesterday after the safety meeting we stopped at the new HEB grocery ant gas station. Interesting there is a convince store and McDonald”s with gasoline selling at $ 1.509 a gallon. I was thinking of the time about a year and a half back about gasoline selling at this price and thought that it was only a memory never to happen again. I also dream of the $ .249 per gallon I paid in 1973 buying 48 gallons about twelve dollars.
Even the diesel fuel under two dollars seems like fantasy after feeling that $3.699 in 2014 was a “cheep” price. Who ever thought the OPEC oil cartel would pump and sell as much as they could produce after limiting production for so many years. Even our round trip east this summer diesel purchases were at least one dollar per gallon less than the year before.
One location that I purchased diesel over five years, Tallahassee, Florida (2015 - $2.529) (2014 - ($3.889) (2013 - $4.269) (2010 - $3.169) (2009 - $2.669). The lowest price per gallon I paid for Buster is $ 1.889 per gallon in March 2009 in Eloy Arizona. The most we paid for diesel fuel in Tampa, Florida May 2008 $4.699.
We are still admiring, a year latter, that we have done the right thing in changing the refrigerator to the residential type. We are able to store more and the temperature is constant thirty-eight degrees, not fluctuating from forty-four to sixty-four degrees.
