Hello, Ethyl

Back in the day, when regular gas was a quarter, if you got premium, then known as ethyl, it cost 2 cents or 4 cents more, depending on whether you traded at a “major” station or a “minor” station.  Today, as the price of gas is headed toward $5.00, you will pay a premium of 20 to 40 cents depending on the station. Now that’s progress.
