Here's something to ponder.  If someone tells you that they don't want something, should you give them something anyway?

I mean, and maybe it's because I'm a guy and I use guy logic, but if someone tells me they don't want something, I'm assuming that they are being honest and upfront with me and I'm going to honor their wishes, that makes sense, right?

Apparently, that might not be the case.

My wife's birthday was over the weekend and other than a Birthday Card, I didn't get her anything.  Now, before you judge me for being a horrible husband and human being, keep this in mind, she told me not to get her anything.  So, I didn't.

Well, that's not entirely true, we did go on a road trip to Billings on Saturday because she wanted to check out a couple of places over there, so I mean, I paid for the gas there and back.  So that's kind of a gift right? Plus, I bought lunch.  So, technically, she got a card, dinner, AND a trip.

That seems like a decent gift, right?

I mean if someone said, "Hey, I want to take you on a Cruise for your birthday" you would be excited. It just so happens that our "cruise" was to Billings, rather than someplace tropic with beaches. Although, lets be honest the Bozeman Pass can be breathtaking, so you can add beautiful scenery to the list as well.

The more I think about it, the more it looks like I knocked this out of the park. Did I mention the Birthday Card was one of those 8 dollar fancy ones with the glitter and the pop up thingy when you open it. You know, what I'm taking about, the kind you buy when you care enough to give the very best?

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

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