Getting in the car and going somewhere whether it's to the store or a long trip anything can happen.

There are several dangerous highways and interstates in Illinois that all drivers need to be aware of.

  • Dan Ryan Expressway
  • Interstate 57
  • Kennedy Expressway
  • Edens Expressway / Interstate 94
  • Eisenhower Expressway / Interstate 290

Now there is good news. Not one highway or interstate near the Tri-Staet area has been named as a dangerous road. Now that doesn't mean accidents don't happen cause we all know that they do, but it's a bit way knowing that there are no dangerous roads in our immediate area.

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.
