So, your Historical Gas price graph is for the year 2012 and the prices on ur graph only have a variance of .09cents??
Lets see a graph for the last 5-6 years than get an actual Historical Graph from the previous 50 years and add inflation into the mix. I guarantee
that these prices dont fit even for todays standards.
The Historic rise was the precurser to get us used to $3.00 a gallon gas. So, when the fluctuations move to $4.00 its not that big of deal. Now,
going from $.99 a gallon to $2.00 or even $2.50 was a huge deal.
I can provide a graph actual recorded every time I filling up. It is segmented by going from a gasoline to diesel fuelled car, but since the price of
diesel is coupled with that of gasoline where I live, I dared superimposing the two.
Since I can see the year graph presented earlier rather accurate, I have tried to more or less draw us dollar prices into it. It aint science but it
can give some oversight in what happened the last 5-6 years.
First the yeargraph provided earlier for comparison.
The big dip you see in the graph is the crisis setting in. A gallon would have done something like $1.20-$1.30. no?
