This is a brief observation and not one I enjoy reporting.
Today, the national average price for a gallon of unleaded regular reached $4.22. The last time we were at this price was in 2014.
However, we have a way to go before reaching the U.S. average price record high since 1998 of $3.70 in 2012, which, when adjusted for inflation, is $4.69 per gallon today.
Either price is a long way from the the lowest national average since 1998 of $1.12 per gallon, or $1.99 after adjusting for inflation.
