Throwback Thursday

THE PRICE WAS RIGHT: Today, 96 cents won’t buy a pack of gum, but ahead of Memorial Day weekend in 2000, it could get happy drivers a gallon of gas. This was a special deal at a Citgo station in Woburn, which offered gasoline at reduced prices for several hours on May 26, 2000, as gas prices were expected to rocket ahead of the holiday. Of course, “rocket” is relative — in May of 2000, gas was a whopping $1.51 a gallon on average. These days, that’s a rocket trip we’d love to take.(Photo by Darren McCollester/Newsmakers)
