How Do Gasoline Prices Now Compare with Historical Prices?

The single biggest factor in the price of gasoline is the cost of the crude oil from which it is made. In recent years, the world's appetite for gasoline and diesel fuel grew so quickly that suppliers of these fuels had a difficult time keeping up with demand. This demand growth is a key reason why prices of both crude oil and gasoline reached record levels in mid-2008. By the fall of 2008, crude oil prices began to fall due to the weakening economy and collapse of global petroleum demand. These factors helped gasoline prices to drop below $2 per gallon of Regular gasoline in late 2008 and early 2009. The gradual improvement in the U.S. and world economies in 2010 and the political events in the Middle East and North Africa in early 2011, the source of about one third of world oil production, contributed to the increases in crude oil and gasoline prices in 2010 and 2011. There are two ways to compare recent prices with historical prices. One is to compare the price actually paid at the pump, or the "nominal" price. The other is to compare the "real" price, which is the price adjusted for inflation, so that prices in the past are in "today’s" dollar value.
