Buddy Holly and the Crickets recorded "That’ll Be The Day"
in the
Norman Petty Recording Studio, Clovis, New Mexico.

The song would be their first hit.  A previously recorded
version, on July 22, 1956, was produced poorly and the
vocals were performed differently.

FIRST STATE TO TAX GASOLINE IN 1919

Image result for the state of oregon became the first to have a gas tax

The history of the gas tax began when Oregon state lawmakers were
looking for a way to fund road construction. They passed the nation’s
first per-gallon tax on gasoline in 1919. The first gasoline tax was one 
cent per gallon. The revenue was used for early road building projects 
including the Pacific Highway and the Columbia River Highway (below).
