Yea, I think that's right. Because I clearly remember seeing gas below a dollar, and I am not old enough to remember anything before 1998.I think in '92, when I first started driving, gas was 85¢ and cigs were $1.50. I remember thinking that the price went up to the $1.50-$2/gal range fairly quickly after that, too, but I distinctly remember like a week in '98? '99? when suddenly prices dropped back below $1 for like a week -- at least in Champaign -- for the first time since I got my license. Maybe that didn't happen. Maybe I was on drugs. I don't really remember.
I remember when gas was $0.94 a gallon and cigs were $1.50 for a pack of camels in the early 90's

Hmm... that's pretty far from where my stomping grounds were (that's the big ginormous hotel right in downtown Urbana, right?). Not sure if I managed to puke that far. I suppose it's possible.
Roughly 99-01 but I lived in Urbana on Broadway right next to Tudor Hotel (forgot the name) so yeah damn you and your vomit

I remember back when Sosa and McGwire were pumping roids and homers, and some gas stations had gas at 61 cents a gallon to commemorate the home run record being broken. That was the last time I can remember thinking that I was getting a good deal on gas.
