Songbird Salutes the 70's

Driving around Long Island post-Sandy . . . Gas crisis!  Stations are closed, with signs reading "no gas".  A station pumping gas will have a long line of cars waiting . . .

This is temporary, it should resolve as normalcy returns.

But remember when it was the norm?

The gas crisis of the 1970's.  Buying gas on "odd"  or "even" days, depending on your license plate.  Waiting in line at the gas station.

It's when a lot of Americans switched from gas guzzlers to foreign-made fuel efficient vehicles.

There are some things about the 70's that I do not miss at all.
