DAVID KELLEY’S BATTLE AGAINST CANCER

Right now, David is in the fight of his life. He had the upper part of his lung removed due to a PET scan showing signs of cancer on September 6, 2022. They removed seven soft lymph nodes which came back as cancer. The doctor said they thought they had it all figured out, but he had a port installed to do some radiation.

He still has 5 weeks of radiotherapy, then 12 weeks of chemo. He needs 12 months of an immune boost from now, so he’s going to be down for a while. His wife Kaye, his sons David Lee, Christopher, William and Michael, and his bonus son Johnny Benson help him along his journey. He is surrounded by many relatives and friends who are at his side to support him.

WATCH: See how much gas it cost the year you started driving

To learn more about how gas prices have changed over the years, Stacker calculated the cost of a gallon of gas for each of the past 84 years. Using Bureau of Labor Statistics data (published April 2020), we analyzed the average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline from 1976 to 2020 as well as the consumer price index (CPI) for regular unleaded gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

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