It's the petroleum industry's record of gasoline price and quality since 1920. It's a story of quality going UP; prices coming DOWN. 3CK a gallon then: a little over 20* now. Even with greatly increased taxes included, you pay one-third less today than in 1920, after World War I. Excluding taxes, you pay only one-half, 'as mucli today. ,.,-,•• T- j v 'V")i&;f ._ ^j and quality... Meanwhile, gasoline quality has advanced by leaps and bounds. In fact, during the 10 years before the war, the octane number improvement in gasoline has permitted an increase of over 25% in the compression ratio of engines in American cars. This has improved gasoline mileage by at least 11%. Service, too, has increased greatly — with the industry's 400,000 expert roadside service stations to meet your needs as you drive today. Naturally, we're proud of our part in this jobi — and glad to publish this record which shows so well how American business succeeds at its job' of producing better and better living at lower, and lower costs for the people of this country. .1920 1925 1930 1935 1940 1945 1'KKFORMANCE QUALITY 1920 1925 1930 1935 1940 1945 £sso DEALER Ihe Sign ol "Happy Motoring* STANDARD OIL COMPANYj OF NEW JERSEY ,
