A reminder to please take it slower for safety. Roadways are slick due to snow, rain, freezingrain, and lower temperatures. Together, that mix makes for icy roads. Please drive defensively and for the conditions. Plan for extra time to reach your destination safely and allow plenty of extra room between you and and the vehicle ahead of you.
LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving
To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.
Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
