Remember When Gas Was Below $2? It Wasn't That Long Ago
Yesterday LAist reminded us that $4 gas was on the horizon, and pointed to a GasBuddy chart of prices over the last several months.
I headed over to GasBuddy myself to see the price trend... and got a little nostalgic.
Until February 2004, gas was still under $2 (except for one or two brief jumps in 2003). Then, it spiked -- and we've never seen gas prices leading with a "$1" (other then a brief dip during the 2004 holidays) ever since.
Now, as we wonder whether gas will ever even dip under $3, it's interesting to think that not too long ago we were griping about $2 gas. Nice and sneaky, Big Oil!
