Tuesday, August 8, 1933

Mother and I went up home with Aunt Katie and Uncle Laten and Helen. Left at 5:30 p.m. and got there at 12:30 a.m.
White Rose Gas Station
Country Club Plaza
Kansas City, Missouri
This is where Ruth's Uncle Laten likely filled his car with gasoline.

The boy-with-the-slate in the front was the brand of the National Refining Company of
Cleveland, Ohio, (ENARCO), which owned the White Rose stations. His sign here says:
"The weak days - yesterday and tomorrow"

The average price of gasoline in 1933: 10 - 20 cents per gallon,
depending on where you lived (East and West coasts higher).
