It has been my custom lately on Fridays to let Pittsfield residents know about upcoming road work for the city's Street Improvement Project 2021. I like to try to keep people informed ahead of time to allow for any changes to be made, whether it's to map out a different route for your daily commute or to leave 15 minutes earlier than normal to allow for traffic delays, etc.

However, this past Friday was particularly crazy, preparing for the weekend, heading into the twentieth anniversary of 9/11. Anyways, no excuses will suffice. Without any further ado, the schedule for this week, September 13-17, as work continues for the City Of Pittsfield's Street Improvement Project 2021. Thanks to the city and the Mayor's Office for the media statement supplying the information.

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.
