What was the price of a 7-Eleven Slurpee® in the early 1970's?

I vaguely remember there being two sizes of Slurpee when I was a child. Also, did it cost more for the plastic specialty cups?

Per the images in the slideshow at the bottom of this article, there were 3 sizes, and the speciality cups (which IIRC, held a little more than a small and a little less than a medium) cost 20 cents in 1973, frozen beverage included.

In 1973, I recall Slurpees (and Icees: same thing, different branding) as being an expensive frozen treat to my 11 year old's budget, so I would ride my bike* the extra 3 blocks to Thrifty's and get their 5 cents/scoop ice cream.

*yes, it had a banana seat.
