WATCH: See how much gas it cost the year you started driving

To learn more about how gas prices have changed over the years, Stacker calculated the cost of a gallon of gas for each of the past 84 years. Using Bureau of Labor Statistics data (published April 2020), we analyzed the average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline from 1976 to 2020 as well as the consumer price index (CPI) for regular unleaded gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.
