The entire nation is feeling the squeeze on our wallets-from the grocery store where the prices of eggs and milk have tripled, to retail where the costs have risen due to the trucking industry strikes, all the way to the gas pumps where just 23 months ago when I moved here to Midland gas was $1.83 a gallon (for regular unleaded-not mid-grade or premium and not diesel). Fast forward and here we are with similar gas prices to what we all dealt with 9 years ago back in 2013. Right now pretty much state-wide here in Texas, diesel is hovering around $5.29 a gallon-but that varies slightly across Texas. For a gallon of regular unleaded, here are the latest prices by city as of 6/9/22, according to AAA. The place with the highest price per gallon will surprise you-keep scrolling to see!

So, if you're not one of those people who has decided to limit travel to just to and from work and to the grocery store, and you're actually planning a drive this weekend to enjoy the nice weather out of town-keep in mind this list and fill up before you leave. Because we aren't the cheapest here (you might wanna try to make it to Lubbock and fill up there if cheapest is the goal), but we also aren't the most expensive here, either. Skip El Paso and fill up before or after.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
