Gas costs 10 cents per gallon, but on the drive home from filling the tank, a car may be delayed by cows crossing the road. Lanterns were the mode of lighting, even after the introduction of electricity, since it wasn’t on 24 hours a day. Trucks with benches passed as school buses and bartering for gas, eggs and chickens took the place of using money.
