August 3 in San Antonio history...

1928
With the posting of a 1-cent per gallon advance by the Grayburg Oil Co. today gasoline reached peak price per gallon for the year. Gas now sells for 20 cents a gallon.

1938
Health Department officials today seized 500 pounds of pecans that had been farmed out for shelling in eight private homes. This practice is a violation of the city ordinance and has been the cause of much criticism.

1946
Sunday, the first Sabbath since the lifting of the polio ban, found San Antonio children again starched, cleaned behind the ears and ready for Sunday school.

  1. Gas prices really haven't changed. With inflation $.20 back in 1928 is the same as $2.48 today.
