US Gas Prices by Year

With everything that’s going on in Ukraine and the US not buying oil from Russia anymore, which makes up 8 percent of the total supply, gas prices have seen a steady increase. For the first time in history, gas prices saw more than $5 per gallon in California, and other states with higher gas prices like Alaska are coming towards this direction. 

Gas prices are a hot topic right now that affects everyone, from commuters to companies to industrialists. The prices per gallon weren’t always like this as proportionate to income in some years, where Americans could buy more gas than ever.

Here is the 2000s historical data for the average gas prices in the United States for the beginning of every quarter.
