                I remember those, too. We had on of the first McDs by my school back then....

                Bob's was down the road.




                It used to be, that the distance between competing McDonald's were like 10-15 miles between each other. Now, I have 8 McDonald's within a 10 minute radius from my house.

                    I remember filling a one gallon gas can with a quarter.



                    Specifically, I recall one day when my father told me to go to the gas station and put a quarter's worth into the can, so that he could mow the lawn. I asked him if that much gas would fit in the can. He asked me how big the can was - one gallon. He asked me how much gas was - 25.9

                      My mom would take us 6 kids piled into the '59 Ford Country Squire (rear facing seat and no seat belts) to a place that predated McD's, Wetson's in Levittown NY and feed us all a burger, fries and a shake and get a few cents back in change from a 5.00 dollar bill.



                      In '68 I could fill up my '59 Ford 3/4 ton pickup with Sunoco 101 octane for 5 bux too

                        Yep...McDonalds was nothing more than a walk up window witht the arches...than we moved and only had a Wetsons for a number of years...as cheap as it all looks now...my mom cheaped out on the cheese...couldnt afford the upcharge....more impressive was 25 cent a gallon gas...the guy wore a uniform with a tie...washed the windshield...check the tire pressure...and checked the oil. I remember when we had to chip in some nickles and dimes so an older guy would drive us to Asbury so we could see Mountain at the Casino.... Those days are gone

                            Lowest I saw (and purchased!) was 18c / gallon at Sears. And yeah, I bought 20 cent McD burgers for the family riding my bike.

                            P.S. I worked at a Sigmor Shamrock station one summer, we sold gas for 33 cents / gallon and the rumor due to some Middle East crisis was that it might go as high as $1.00 / gallon and they'd have to ration gas.
