Audience Reviews for Gas! -Or- It Became Necessary to Destroy the World in Order to Save It

I loved Gas-s-s-s (or it became Necessary to Destroy the World in Order to Save It.), this movie is hilarious and has a lot of charming quirky characters, plus an interesting end of world story, I highly recommend it. Overall, an interesting early 70s movie.
