Welcome to Gasoline Week here at OPOD. We will be looking back at pictures associated with that fuel that keeps the world moving. We start with this picture from 1979. How many people remember the gas lines of the 1970's? A gas shortage meant you had to search for a station with gas, and then wait in long lines to get some. I can remember also that the price of gas quickly went from around 30 cents a gallon to over a dollar. Dollar gas at the time was a huge burden, but we would look back on it now at the good old days.
