Not only did snaking lines form for blocks to get to gas stations, but the fuel was rationed to only a certain amount per car. By February of 1974 20% of gas stations were dry

1970's Gas Crisis (Me and my sibs made lemonade, put it in our red wagon and walked up Encinita Ave. and Broadway selling lemonade to all the cars in line for the gas station, on the corner of Rosemead and Broadway, one summer!)
Gas shortage of the 70's. Very long lines for gas. I remember this so well, especially the sitting in the car, no air conditioning as we waited for our turn at the pump....
1970's Gas Crisis Am I dating myself if I say I remember this, sitting in the car for an hour to get gas?
1970's Gas Crisis .... remember this...and the one in the 2008 here (after the hurricanes Ike and Gustav wiped out the gulf refineries and they were in the process of changing 'blends', so it was already a low supply) where people were following the gas tankers at 2am in the morning to the gas stations to get gas in their cars!
I completely remember this. They assigned when you could get gas based on whether your house number was odd or even. My sister and I would prepare to spend an entire day getting one tank of gas. Sometimes we'd get a Frosty from Wendy's. People would lie out on the hoods of their cars to get tans while waiting. My sister always got so much attention while we were sitting in the car because she was so beautiful : 1970's Gas Crisis (People want to deny that it happened. Well guess what?)
