Here is a good news, bad news thing and I'll start with the good news. We're FINALLY starting to see some gas stations with gas prices that are less then four dollars per gallon. The bad news....Gas is still around four dollars per gallon.

It's a shame that it's gotten to the point where we are celebrating "low" gas prices because it's under four dollars per gallon. It's the world we live in but I hope that it's not the new normal.

Listen though, while its entirely possible that gas will jump up again, let's just enjoy how we're paying a little less at the pump than we were earlier this summer. Gas prices have been dropping for 70 days, and lets just hope it continues.

In June, gas hit a record high national average of $5.02 per gallon...which meant that half the gas was higher than that. Some reports said that gas could jump to six dollars gallon by the end of the summer.

I'm glad to see that didn't happen...yet. We'll see what happens after November 8. GasBuddy has come out with their latest list of the top ten gas stations with the best prices.

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.
