Greetings wings7,
I remember regular gas going for 10 cents a gallon in 1957 at the Flying A service station in Newark, NJ.
When I got my first used car, 64 Pontiac Grand Prix, in 1967 I paid 19 cents a gallon for Getty premium. Then my younger brother totaled it due to smoking weed.
Those were the days

I seem to remember it was about a quarter per gallon in the 60s, but I really do not remember at this point.

When I was pumping gas for a living in 1972, it was $0.38 a gallon for "Good Gulf."
