This chart represents the average retail price of gas where I live during the last 6 months (today is 11/20/08). As you can see, the prices began to fall slowly around August 5th (give or take) and then took a sharp decline around October 7th.
This chart represents the average retail price of gas where I live during the last 36 months (or 3 years). As you can see there was a bit of rollercoaster riding going on with a steady and significant increase February 07 to June 07 and then a dramatic increase February 08 to July 08. Gas around here is usually higher in the spring/summer months but the increase during 2008 was significant as we went from about $2.89 to $4.13 in five months.
