In 1978, the average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in U.S. cities ranged from 65 cents to 71 cents.

CatFish; I totally forgot the S & H Green stamps !!! Killer memory Brother. My mom God Bless her still had the S & H paper "books" you placed them in to redeem. grin

I also loved the Orange 76 antenna balls they gave out ( I still have a "bag" packed away somewhere; God knows where ??? ) ; the Exxon Tiger stickers you could get and Standard had some type of Hawaiian Flower Stamps you could get; fill a card out and win prizes ! cool

We took a little van trip out to Oregon a couple of years back and while we were there stopped at a Sinclair station. They had a big stuffed "Dino" for sale. Remember them?
Well of course the better half just had to have it so all the way back across country I had to sleep every night with a big green dinosaur between us.... lol

Holy Moly; I can't remember when I saw a Sinclair Sign last. The guy i bought my 1974 G10 shorty in October was a Chevy man all his life. His garage was off the hook. Pic's of his 55', 56' and 57' at Irwindale Raceway and Orange County Raceway. He had old school triangle shaped wheel balancers and no lie the old school Sun Diagnostic Center he still used. Not to mention his 1953 Sedan Delivery that was better than new.

On the side of his garage he had a Chevrolet Dealership " OK " large circle shaped signed that hanged on the side of the Chevrolet Service Centers. I haven't seen one of those since the 60's. I want one of those so bad.
I remember seeing a program on T.V. ; somewhere in the Mid west (?) where there was a retro looking old school filling station that sells the original old school pop in glass bottles and the candy we all remember.
I'd like to road trip out there someday.

To think your mention of S & H Green stamps took me down memory lane. Good Times Brother. Thanks CatFish.

I worked for Lowes Foods for 12.5 years. During that time they reintroduced the S&H green stamps program. Books, stamps, and all. It was only meant to be used to redeem for specially stocked giveaway items (plates, silverware, cookware, etc). That was in the early 2000's. This program gave way to the S&H card, a card with those same benefits. That was then transitioned to a purchase-tracking/reward card just like all other stores have. This card not only is required to receive sale prices, but it accrues points which are redeemed for discounts on fuel at local gas stations.
