  • $5.92 it says for my birth year. Yikes! I remember when I was about five and my grandpa would nearly fill the 1-gallon gas can for a quarter. LOL. I must be getting old!

  • $1.92 apparently. I think the value of a dollar has gone down way more than 92 cents since 1986.

  • $1.00 in 1973 had about the same buying power as $4.95 in 2009.

    Annual inflation over this period was about 4.54%.
