How do gasoline prices now compare with historical prices?

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.

The graph at right shows the average annual nominal and real prices of regular gasoline from 1976 through 2012. The real price is based on the value of the dollar in February 2012. Over this entire span of time, consumers paid the highest prices for gasoline in real terms in 1981, 1982, 2008, and 2011.
