Gas prices have shocked Americans at the pump for the last ten years or more. Really, since the early to mid 1970’s, gas prices have been rising and spiking quite frequently. It’s only in recent years that prices have settled and fallen. Prices at the pump in 2015 felt very similar to those in 1929 when you compare them both in 2015 dollars.
This infographic from TitleMax.com charts the rise and (sometimes) fall of gas prices – both actual prices and prices in 2015 dollars – since 1929.
