Fill 'Er Up!

We’re all reveling in this winter’s low gas prices.  Let’s hop into the time machine to match gas prices with the model years of a few community automobiles.  Most of the data comes from energy.gov with the title ‘Average Retail Price of Gasoline’.  The prices come from regular leaded gas until 1990 and are based on regular unleaded gas thereafter. 

Its time to get in “Back to the Future” mode. 

Marty McFly: Hey, Doc.  We better back up.  We don't have enough road to get up to 88. 

Dr. Emmett Brown: Roads?  Where we're going, we don't need roads.
