Check Out Some Photos from a Recent Berkshire County Show in Which Olde Yankee Street Rods Participated 

You may remember that the Great Barrington Fire Department had its annual Main Street Car Show on Aug. 4. The Olde Yankee Street Rods supplied the music for that car show as they do each and every year. Below, we have included a photo gallery from that particular car show to give you an idea of some of the types of vehicles you'll see at the Great Barrington V.F.W. on Sept. 3.

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.
