The Good Old Days in GPK






HI MARTY,

 

THE GOOD OLD DAYS  IN G.PK. WHEN THE OIL WAS 20 CENTS FOR ONE FAT IMPERIAL GALLON , OR LESS THAN 5 CENTS A LITER IN THE FIFTIES  I AM SURE EVERYBODY KNEW, HALL BROS. FROM SPRINGFIELD PARK NOW ST-HUBERT EXCUSE ME LONGUEUIL, TOLHURST TEXACO PETOLEUM,  LONGUEUIL PETROLEUM, VETERAN'S PETROLEUM IN MACKAYVILLE, AND IDEAL PETROLEUM IN V. LEMOYNE WHO GAVE MR. FOGARTY A HALF A CENT DISCOUNT PER GALLON IN 1951  MAYBE BECAUSE HE WAS A VETERAN, AND TO STOP HIM FROM PURCHASING IN MACHAYVILLE FROM VETERAN'S PETROLEUM.

 

THANKS MARTY.

PS WHEN YOU CONSIDER WE ARE PAYING TODAY ABOUT MORE OR LESS 16  TIMES THAT PRICE IT IS NOT THAT MUCH CONSIDERING THE SALARIES IN 1950 AND TODAY, I USE TO BUY A CORONA SODA  POP OR A POPSICLE FOR 5 CENTS AT KIPPS IN 1957, LOOK AT THE PRICE TODAY, NO MORE POPSICLES FOR ME NO SIR.

Thanks Normand
