Gas was a buck? ((My dad sent me this:

"WHEN the middle east raised gas prices in 1973, I had payments to make on 2 big v-8 gas guzzelers. all the print was 'don't worry - detroit knows'. detroit expected 20 cent gas again, and the glory days of the '50s."))

Good steaks were $3-4/pound. Milk was a buck cheaper than it is now.

What else?

I remember working hard for $2.25 an hour (minus required uniforms, meals etc) and thinking I was doing really good.
