I recall seeing $1.89 in NOLA two years ago while visiting. Could not believe my eyes.

1975 is a bad year to discuss gas prices as it was very volatile

Two historical peaks in gas prices in constant dollars, one in 1980 and one in 2013, both about $3 a gallon on today’s money

The cost of transportation fuel per household is at a historic low due to gains in fuel efficiency, we pay less to get around than in any other time in history.

The average price in 1975? 0.34 cents a gallon.


What would that .34 cents be when calculated for inflation? Two bucks or so? I admit I am not smart enough to figure that one out.


Inflation calculator says it's.... $1.64 in 2020 dollars

I only use premium. so...it's expensive. why bother to look at the price. it's sad that my modern 10.4 cr 2.4 light weight roadster gets about 8 mpg less than my bug did...and feels like half the hp too Shocked only gm could fuck up that bad. I should put a honda motor in it. Wink or better yet a turbo...but thats too much like work.

We were at $1.86 to $1.99 depending on the county (Atlanta Metro) but for the last week every station within 90 miles in any direction it’s at $2.09.
They must have all been at the same meeting.

Here in San Diego the gas prices have pretty much been stable at $3.00 per gallon for the cheap stuff. Give or take a dime or two depending on which brand you buy. It been this way through most of Covid.

Wow, been while since the last post in here.

Did a quick road trip this fall, and saw prices from here in Idaho hovering around $2.45, all the way down to $1.89 in MN and the Dakotas.

Now, we are just barely above $2.00 around here, and dropping quickly.

Drove into Eastern WA today (Spokane). On the ID side of the border it was $2.09. On the WA side just a few miles away it was around $2.40.
