A Matter Of Opinion

Mon., May 12, 2008, 9:03 a.m.

Loose thread (or maybe loose bearings)

Let's see if we can combine two things that people obsess about -- the cost of gasoline and "When I was a kid...."
After a TV anchor recalled this morning when gas was only $1.50 a gallon, my wife and I recalled instead when it was about a quarter.
Altogether now, how many of you remember the phrase, "A dollar's worth of regular, please."
If so, what was the likely response one got to such a request? (Answer later today.)
