When Jim Little first began selling gas at H&H Mobil in 1969, the price hovered around 35 cents per gallon.
"People didn't worry about foreign oil and energy independence, but things have changed," he said.
Those two factors were the driving force behind Little's decision to open East Lansing's first E85 ethanol pump Tuesday at H&H Mobil, 1500 Haslett Road.
The move makes Little's gas station the third in Mid-Michigan with an E85 ethanol pump and the 44th in the state.
"If you would have told people (in 1969) they would be running their car on corn, they would have laughed at you," Little said.
