    I started driving in 1996 and I don’t remember gas ever being below $2.00.  Maybe like $1.98… in California.

    I remember when I first got my license in 2002 in MN,  I paid $0.97! I wish that’s what I was paying now!

    I remember it being about 99 cents in southern California back around 03.

    99 cents when I first started driving. 

    Sadly, now it’s been over $4 for a bit. 🙁

    I started driving in 2002 and I remember being able to fill up my tank for $18. Assuming I had a 12 gallon tank, I’m guessing gas was somewhere around $1.50 p/gallon. 

    Upstate, NY
    $1.50ish p/gallon

    I remember paying about $1.20 through most of my early driving years.  Though, I think it was like $0.98 when I first started driving in 1999.  I’m from the Midwest, so I know that makes a little difference. 

    It wasn’t until I started working on my teaching degree in 2004 that gas really started to get expensive enough for me to care.  I miss the days of cruising around just for fun.  Now, I can barely afford to drive around town.  I worry about having the gas to drive to interviews (I’m an art teacher so the travel distance can be far).  My husband and I seriously consider whether it’s cheaper to go to a laundry mat and spend the gas or pay twice as much at our apartment buildings broken down machines.  It really sucks. 🙁

    I started in about 2002 and it was hovering right under a dollar or about $1.05 in the midwest. Man, I sure do miss those days!

    I got my DL in Michigan in 1998 and I believe the lowest I ever paid was around 88 cents.  I remember freaking out in 2000 when the gas prices went up to $1.20, lol

    I think I remember paying $1.15 for gas the first time I ever bought it in 2001 when I got my license, but I just looked up the average and it was supposedly $1.46 that year.

    Geez, I can hardly believe it was LESS than a dollar not long before that. I am so stressed out over gas right now it’s like painful to even discuss this. I just paid $4.45 the other day. And I don’t want to think about how much my guests are going to have to pay to fly out next summer. There goes half our list. Absolute bullshit.

    I started driving in 2000. I recall it was around .89-.99 that next summer. Essentially an inconsequential amount even to a 16 year old. Now as an adult we budget for it– depressing.

    The lowest I ever remember gas being in Canda is .36/litre ($1.44/gallon) in the late 80’s.  When I first started driving in 1998 I think it was .69/litre. 

    Today it rings in at a stunning $1.38/litre ($5.52/gallon).

    I remember in 2000 it being $.97, and we used to always drive everywhere cuz it cost less than $15 to fill up the tank!  Those were the days….
