In 2001, the national average price of a gallon of regular gasoline was $1.46. That is equal to about $1.80 per gallon in 2010 dollars.
I do remember it! I do!
It's scary how quickly I became accustomed to it being double that as a driver
I don't think if I were 17 years old today I would have been able to afford filling my tank
It was bad enough needing gas money then!
