1979

People line up with cans to buy gas at a Mobil gas station in July 1979 in Suffolk County, New York, United States of America. In 1977, oil prices went up to more than $20 a barrel in response to increased demand and OPEC’s policy of limiting supply which caused long lines at gasoline stations, and for the first time in history gasoline prices exceeded $1 a gallon in the United States.
