If you want to get really nostalgic I can remember when petrol was 3/11 a gallon that is about 4.3p per litre.
There again back in 1965wages were much less. I had a summer job which paid 2/6 (12.5p) per hour. So an hour's work bought 3 litres. Minimum wage, for an 18 year old, today is £5.03 which would buy 3.75 litres. It would seem that in terms of purchasing power today's 18 year old is better off.
