Call by Number. It's Twice as Fast.

From the July 1955, Good Housekeeping:
Back in the day when operators helped place long-disance calls. 

It cost $1.50 per minute to call St. Louis from the Grand Canyon. 
At the time, a gallon of gas cost 20 cents. 
The equivalent cost of this phone call today might be around $20 a minute.
