Default what was the average cost for a gallon of gas the year you were born?

1967: .33 a gallon
at that price it would take just $6.43 to fill up a 19.5 gallon tank!

I remember in 2001 I was a senior and gas was like $1.19 or something. And I remember bitching about it!

The earliest I remember was 67 cents a litre. 20 bucks would fill up our 1993 Grand Caravan in the 90s

I was born in 1994. Not sure how old i was but i must have been old enough to count by two's. I remember asking my dad "why don't they just make gas $2/gallon, that way it's easier to count. It must have been around a buck fifty or so at that time.
