It's been a tough year with gas prices alone and even though the prices came down a bit, they are back on the rise. Now with the holidays just around the corner, we know that there are people that really need a little help. That's why The Eagle teamed up with Hobbs Manufactured Homes for the Hobbs Helping Hand contest.
It's time to announce a winner. We had a great response with a lot of wonderful nominations. We wish everyone could be a recipient of Hobbs Helping Hand, but unfortunately, we can only have one.
Thanks for all the nominations! Now the time has come to announce the Hobbs Helping Hand Winner of $300 worth of VISA gift cards.
Our winner is Melissa Coker!
Melissa's daughter Chris nominated her by saying;
I'd like to nominate my mother for the $300 Hobbs giveaway. She is a hardworking teacher and drives over an hour to work each morning and over an hour each evening back home. This would really help her with the fuel prices. Thank you so much
We will do this again! Nominations are open from October 1, 2022 thru December 11, 2022, for a chance to win a $300 Visa Gift Card just in time for Christmas. The winner will be notified on Monday, December 12, 2022.
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.
