Is this what the early 1970s were like?

I had a hell of a time finding a gas station that was actually open today. There was a fire or something at a refinery and so gas is in short supply around here. When I did get to a station, I found that the advertised price was bullshit as they only had premium gas left. Is it legal to post the price of regular when you only have premium? I felt ripped off.

Incidentally, the article I linked to mentioned that this was Esso's second fire since December. Some one better tell them that gasoline is flammable, sheesh!
