World's Oldest, Still Functioning Gas Pump

Picture taken last summer while camping with the family in Kings National Forest, CA - home of the Giant Sequoia trees (click pic to enlarge)

The two gasoline pumps are fully functional and were manufactured and installed in 1928.
They probably quenched the thirst of every automobile model ever driven on American highways starting with the Ford Model T.

Cost of gasoline in 1928: 21 cents per gallon
Cost of gasoline in 2008: Son()f@!*Bitc&!#M_th(r&ckeR
