LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Can you imagine paying 30-cents for a gallon of gas?

Turns out many Angelenos could – and it caused a traffic jam Thursday on the Westside.

Restaurants and retailers across Los Angeles gave Angelenos the chance to take a trip back in time to 1959 prices in celebration of the popular Amazon show “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”

As part of its Emmy campaign push, Amazon partnered with dozens of businesses to roll back their prices six decades to the year in which “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” is set, including a Chevron gas station in Santa Monica.

Shortly after 10 a.m., Santa Monica police urged everyone to avoid the area near Cloverfield and Michigan due to “increased vehicle traffic”.

The turnout for the gas promotion was so large a local art gallery said it was shutting its doors early after police to close traffic to most of the area.

The Robert Berman Gallery posted a photo to its Twitter page of a sign reading, “WE ARE CLOSED TODAY DUE TO THE CHAOTIC NATURE OF THE FREE GAS PROMOTION. OUR APOLOGIES.”
