On the High Rise
By: Meleah Graham
Gas prices have been on a rise for a while, but yet with the luck of the draw these gas prices have been going down. This made me think how much was gas in 1984.
In 1984 some places the gas only costed .31 cents.
Now in 2014 gas prices have rised to $2.79.
2.97-.31=$2.66 Amount of change= amount of change/original amount
Amount of change=2.66/2.97*100
Amount of change= Increase of 89%
That since 1984 the price of gas has gone up.
