I suspect my son born in 78 does not recall it either. Your dad and I are about the same age.

If memory serves me it was called the Middle East Oil Embargo. It was in 1979. And yes it was odd and even license plates and very long lines to get gas. Needless to say there were some people who tried to jump in line. Guess what that didn't work! People got very upset if that happened and fights would start up. My husband says at the time gas was 26 cents at the time and they raised it to 49 cents. we are just missing the odd and even license plates! And the long lines. It wasn't a fun time at all.

Yeah... I remember... the word of the day was "gotta stock up before the hoarders get it".
