We Need To Do Better. It is horrible the amount of trash I see just driving to work from Bayville to Toms River.

How is this even possible for trash to be everywhere? Why is there so much trash around the fence all the time? Are people littering? Do people actually throw trash out their windows? Come on, please tell me that's not true. But, why else would trash be everywhere? The town will come by and clean it up, but in a couple of weeks it will be filled with paper, bags, and cans, once again.

When I see someone walking down the road and they literally just drop something on the ground, why would they do that? What are they thinking? How lazy can you get?

I see this on the side of the Garden State Parkway and Rt. 9, also. Trash all over the place. I'm thinking maybe, just maybe, trash is blowing from someone's trash can.

I can understand that. But, all this trash isn't just from a trash can. Why would someone throw trash out of their window? Can't you just wait until you get home and throw it away? I have never thrown any trash out of my car.

In a recent poll from google, 75% admit they have littered in the last 5 years. Did you know US taxpayers, me and you, spent nearly 11 billion dollars on cleaning up litter, according to google.com. From google.com the majority of litter is cigarettes discarded and aluminum beer and soda cans.

Beer cans? What? We need to do better, this can't be happening. Some litter comes from walkers and bicyclists but mostly the litter comes from cars.

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.
