Yes I do. The Remington plastic bricks with the slide off top were pretty cheap, as I recall.

That was then...

I remember gasoline at ,29 a gallon. I used to have to change the price on the Mechanical pumps, It took 20 minutes to do a pump. And when it over a dollar a gallon, the pump didn't go that high, so we sold it by the half gallon! I must have explained the .45 cents a thousand times...

RE: Remember when....
I remember buying gas for less that $1 in 1999. I also remember there was a sign on I94 north of Kenosha that had to be torn down because it was digital but only had 2 digits. Wasn't until 2005ish when it finally did. I remember $1.25 for cigarettes and swearing I would quit when the price doubled (it double again to $4.25 when I finally did). I also remember candy bars for 25 cents (btw, when did the drop the cents sign from keyboards?), soda in cans for 25 cents and 35 cents for the glass bottles.

RE: Remember when....
I remember my dad and step-dad complaining about the price of gas going up to $0.99 in the late '70s, not to mention the lines around the block when stations had gas to sell. As kids we drank a lot of RC because it was $0.15 for a can compared to a can of Pepsi or Coke being $0.25. When the price of cans went up to $0.50, RC still stayed lower at $0.25 so we still drank a lot of it. I remember going to Taco Bell with my younger brother in the early '90s and we'd get filled to the point of bursting for $5 each. We'd each get two value meals and a Nacho supreme for that $5. Good luck trying to do that today. One of my favorite pizza shops to order from in Pittsburgh used to sell a small pepperoni and sausage pie for $4.25 delivered. Now it's about $8 according to my brother. Their minimum cost to deliver was $4 and now it's $15 he said.
