LOL. Neither do we.

But Shell Canada tried to jog our memories this morning, when they dropped gas prices at to a mere 39.9 cents a litre — or the approximate price of gas in Alberta in 1984.

The promotion was held to celebrate the company's 30th anniversary of refining in Alberta.

Eight stations across the province will feature the rolled-back prices, for approximately an hour at a time.
