Historical 25 year chart: barrels of oil per ounce of gold

A large part of the summer of 1979, I spent living in a coastal Italian town of Ladispoli, about an hour's drive from the grand Rome. I was just entering my teenage years at the time, but somewhere in the back of my mind I already knew that sooner or later I would be burdened with all the responsibilities of an adult.
