88.9c cents for me on Saturday. Ridiculous.
Prices here seem to be rising.

I remember paying under 20 cents per gallon when I got my first car in the early 50's. Of course I was earning 60 cents/hour working as a part-time movie usher at the time. That was an enjoyable job, especially working at the kid's Saturday matinee where the admission was 9 cents and the candy bars cost 6 cents and the popcorn cost 16 cents.
Move the decimal point a couple of and the prices are about the same.
Evening price at the Tower Theatre in Upper Darby, PA, where I worked was 50 cents + tax for adults in 1952. The 9 cent price for kids on Saturday avoided the tax, which would have been a penny if they charged 10 cents. That was a real bargain as the kids show was about four hours long with a western, main feature, serial (Buck Rogers. e.g.), cartoons, and a silly screen race feature with prizes for the kids.
Wow and I thought I was old, you guys got me beat!
I filled up my boat, lawn mower, misc gas cans last week when gas by me was at $1.09/gal. My perks reward at the BP station dropped it to $0.599/gal. I spent $20.97 for the 35 gallon limit....Pretty crazy! Where I usually live (between Milwaukee and Madison), gas got down to $0.93/gallon. I hadn’t seen those prices since the early 1990’s, and it’s all reformulated/10% ethanol.
Just as of late this week, it’s back up to $1.39/gal for regular unleaded. I timed it pretty good.
