Thursday Thinker: Gas Price Quiz

My dad found an old gas receipt in his glove compartment yesterday.  The receipt is dated from December 1998.  WITHOUT LOOKING IT UP - how much did a gallon of regular gas cost in December of '98?

Answer: On December 8, 1998, a gallon of gas purchased in NY cost $1.049.  The entire tank was filled for $15.  Elin wins with a guess of $1.039!
