Light comes on and the car dings, ugg…..There’s nothing I dislike more than having to stop for gas! Usually, I just roll in – close my eyes and fill it up. Take my little slip and get on with my day. Today my daughter and I went out. Thankfully I didn’t need gas, but looked at the prices. They went up like $.17 cents in the past few days where I live. That’s insane! Which is what inspired me to check the history of average gas prices. I got this information off of www.thepeoplehistory.com. By the way, this site has some cool information. ANYWAY! Here’s what I came up with:
1986 – $.89
1996 – $1.22
2001 – $1.46
2008 – $3.39
2009 – $2.73
2010 – $2.73
I had forgotten we had these insane prices a few years back.
Whew! That felt better. I’m still not happy, because I know next time I visit the gas station I don’t even want to think about it!
