I guess that each station owner came up with his own solution.  I recall pumps that had a "1." pasted on in front of the cents.

I do remember pump displays with the windows notched to the left to  
indicate more than 99.9 a gallon. Those must have been the first pumps to be

A very informal survey, and I probably won't even keep  track.

How many of you remember when the price of gasoline went above  $1.00?

Do you also recall that many stations (most?) had to price the  fuel by the 
gallon because their pumps could not show a price higher  than 99.9 cents?

So, I guess that is really two questions.

My  answer is Y and Y.

Final question....  What year was  that?

My answer..  Don't know.

Fall  of '79....  I owned a gas station...in SoCal

In Fall of  '81  we had to have full gallon / litre pricing....      litre  
didn't go over well... ggg
