SOUTHINGTON, Ohio – An Ohio couple has been repaid for a liquid asset they loaned out 34 years ago.
Violet 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.
