Sign of the times

I realized as I pulled into the gas station last night and started celebrating that I was going to get Premium gas for $3.85 (that's right PREMIUM) that times have definitely changed. I remember the last time I got gas for under a dollar. I was in Salem I think in my Senior year and it was at the Arco that smelled like the Mushroom Factory not more than a mile away. I'm not sure why that memory is so strong but it is. I didn't realize at the time is was momentous but now I realize it will be the kind of story I tell when I'm 80. Sort of like our parents walking to school uphill both ways in ten feet of snow. I think I'm getting old but I was still very happy yesterday for my $3.85 that's for sure.
