 The Gerry Mulligan Quartet always spring to mind when an increase in petrol prices occurs.  In 1971 I had just bought his album on long play ... that's thirty three and a third revs to the uninititated ...and also, on that same day, our local JET petrol station had reduced petrol prices to 33 pence a gallon.  Now today we have the most expensive petrol probably in the world at $1.30 a litre.  Chet Baker's souful trumpet could well accompany the sad occasion.
