1970's Gas Crisis. I remember this! Gas lines were mostly 1 1/2 hour wait. You often did not get to fill up. Maybe 10 gallons and just when it became your turn....yep...the pump was out of gas.
Gas lines in the 70's. The 1973 Arab Oil Embargo created a gas shortage. You could only attempt to get gas on your designated day...either odd or even numbered. You'd wait & wait & wait and hope they didn't run out before your turn.
1970's Gas Crisis .... Gas line 1979....I remember you had to alternate getting gas on certain days, I think by your license plate number or something. Summer between my junior and senior year.
1970's Gas Crisis (People want to deny that it happened. Well guess what?) Gas lines at the gas station.
1970's Gas Crisis (People want to deny that it happened. Well guess what?) I remember this, sitting in line for 4 hours just to get gas, holy hell lol
