Man returns gas 34 years later
SOUTHINGTON, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio couple has been repaid for a liquid asset they shared 34 years ago.
and Harold Goff of Southington say a man showed up at their home
recently and explained that he’d appeared at their door in 1974 when he
was 17 and had run out of gas.
Back then, Harold Goff got a
five-gallon can of gasoline for Jeffrey Hardin. Goff remembers telling
the teen to make sure to pay it back.
Hardin still lives in the
area and told the Goffs the debt had remained in the back of his head.
So, he presented them with a plastic, five-gallon container of gas.
Harold Goff notes that he made a good investment, since the gas and container once worth about $5 are now worth $25.
