I've only been to one wine festival and it was a total disaster. I was a student at West Virginia University and I went to the West Virginia Wine and Jazz Festival. Don't get me wrong, the event was a great time but oh sweet Jesus, the headache I had later that night was miserable. Instead of drinking out of a wine glass, I was drinking out of my own bottle. Let's just say, my college experience was a blast but I also was a total moron!

The WIN & WINE Festival sounds amazing! What's better than relaxing in the sun, drinking wine, and watching horse races?! Get a fun group together and plan to go for Saturday, Sunday...OR BOTH DAYS! A huge shoutout out to Monmouth Park because they plan on doing other sweet events throughout summer 2021, I am thrilled to see the park back doing its normal things!

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.
