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.
