I don't know about you, residents of Pittsfield, but every day during my commute to and from work, I either travel on streets that are currently being worked on(which is good) or streets that are in urgent need of repair.

That's why whenever I see a new schedule come out for the city of Pittsfield's Street Improvement Project, I pore over it immediately just to see what streets are next in line for much-needed roadwork. And, of course, pass along the info to you.

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.
