    $0.29 per gallon delivered to the ranch. Filling up the tank didn't hurt too bad back then....

    I remember being shocked when it hit $1.00 a gallon and it wasn't too long after that 22 LR went to $5.00 a brick. Man was I pissed!!

    Going to turn it into a fridge for the garage.
    1960 is when that pump was pulled. It has a cover on the top
    where the globe went.
