Gas and Inflation

I don't know if it's me or it really is an interesting topic but inflation seems to get the student at least a little exicted. Here's some ideas about the current price of gas.

In 1960, gas was 31 cents a gallon (regular, leaded), but in today's dollars, that would be $1.95. In 1980, it was $1.25 (unleaded, regular), or $2.82 in $2004. 1990, $1.16, or $1.65 today. The latest average is $1.72.
