    Out of Covid Boredom I was cleaning out the old family desk today and ran across an oil change receipt as well as a Standard Oil Credit card receipt. I thought I would share how it was done back in the day and what it cost in Los Angeles in May 1940. Gas at .18/gallon and top of the line oil at .25/quart. Standard Oil was one of the top gas and oil stations. It was probably cheaper with the independents, especially in the cheaper parts of the country. IMG_4070.jpg IMG_4071.jpg

    My memory may be wrong but when I started in the gas station(1963) I don't think we charged labor for oil changes, just for the oil,, filter , and fluids ( antifreeze , brake fluid , gear oil trans fluid, power steering fluid , distilled water for the battery)....I remember fixing a flat was $2...gas was $.30 gal..
