Drivers have been bracing for ongoing increases in the prices they pay for fuel but people filling up with diesel at one Johnson City retailer have seen a big price spike.

The posted price for diesel at the Mirabito convenience store early Tuesday morning was $5.199 a gallon. That compares to $4.299 five days earlier.

While diesel rose 90 cents a gallon at that site, regular gasoline prices increased by 50 cents a gallon.

The store is one of Mirabito's lower-volume retail locations. It is near Wilson Medical Center and the Binghamton University Health Sciences Campus.

According to the AAA gas price report, the average price of diesel in the Binghamton market has increased by 82 cents over the past week. The average price of regular gas locally has gone up by about 54 cents a gallon over the last seven days.

The price of gas and diesel is expected to continue rising in the near future as more sanctions are placed on Russia as the result of its invasion of Ukraine.

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.
