Buy Your Gas for 20 Cents a Gallon

SIGN OF THE PAST IS THIS ABANDONED GASOLINE PUMP WITH A PRICE OF 29.9 CENTS PER GALLON. THE COST OF FUEL HAS MADE... - NARA - 555508 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Nothing like a cup of coffee (or 3) before heading off to church and other activities.  Wouldn’t it be great if the gas you were using today only cost .20 or .25 cents a gallon?  Well it still can….sort of.  I read an interesting post on The New American.com today.  I thought I would pass it along for your learning experience.  The article is “How to Buy Gasoline for 20 Cents a Gallon”  I highly recommend it, not because it may change the way you invest some of your savings.  It is a real eye opener if you haven’t been paying attention to inflation and how the government and private banking, (The Federal Reserve) manipulate money.

Chip WoodHas the price of gas hit $4 a gallon yet where you live? As I mentioned in last week’s column, several analysts predict that cost will seem cheap before the year is out. Are you ready to pay $5 a gallon?

Some neighbors and I were reminiscing recently about how cheap things were back in “the good old days.” I mentioned that the very first credit card I got was for one of the gas-station chains. Back then, gasoline cost less than 25 cents a gallon.

Then I said something that stopped them cold. “Do you know that you can still buy gasoline for about 20 cents a gallon?” They were all positive there was a trick to my question — and there was. My claim is absolutely, totally, 100 percent true — if you pay with dimes that were minted before 1965.

Back then, dimes, quarters, half dollars, and silver dollars were 90 percent pure silver. Today, those coins are commonly referred to as “junk silver.” But believe me, there is nothing junky about them.

A great article huh guys?  If you are like most of the Regular Joes I know you are not in the market to go out and buy an ounce of gold and time soon.  I hope that it will help motivate you to find a reputable local coin dealer and spend a little every  week or month buying a little junk silver.  I have some and hope to purchase a little more every month.

PS.  Don’t forget the other precious metal….Lead! as in ammunition.
