I have a close friend that was recently hit by a car while they were riding their bicycle along the road. They've been laid up for a while and has missed work but things could have been so much worse. I pray for this person every day and I'm glad that they are alive.

Unfortunately, the same can't be said for Brennan Loveless. Brennan was a 13-year-old that loved to ride bikes and he loved them so much that he got a new bike for Christmas. According to his father, Tim, he had the flu around Christmas and wasn't feeling well at all.

On Christmas morning, Brennan got up long enough to put the bike together and then went back to bed. He pretty much stayed in bed for the rest of the week and was beginning to feel better on New Year's day.

He got up, rode all day but never came home. That's because Brennan was struck and killed while riding his bike in a hit and run accident. Brennan was taken far too soon and this event will be in his honor and memory

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.
