I remember a "Gas War" about that time where it got down to $.19 a gallon.

Hey, here's an idea. Let's find a way to put salmonella in oil. Then the bottom will fall out of oil prices like it's done to tomatoes, right? Right?

Imagine a gas price war today. Heck ... we could be talking 3.80 a gallon!!! Whooo-hoooo!!

Better yet ... let ship our tomatoes to the oil producers.
