Q:

How much was a gallon of gas in 1984?

A:

According to 1980s Flashback, 1984 saw a median gas price of $1.21 per gallon. At that time, stamps were 20 cents and a dozen eggs were $1.01.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) explains that the price per gallon of gas fluctuates with the price of crude oil. It's directly correlated with the supply and demand of crude oil-based products. The EIA goes on further to state that gas is typically higher in the summer seasons, when a more costly summer blend is sold. Supply disruptions can also drive the price of gasoline higher per gallon, no matter what season it is.

    What happens when a gallon of sugar water is added to a car's gas tank?

    A:

    If one gallon of sugar water is added to a car's gas tank, it is likely that the car's fuel lines will get filled with water, potentially causing serious mechanical issues for the car. However, this is because gasoline floats on top of water, which means that water would be the first liquid available to the car's fuel pump, and not because of any potential harm sugar can do to a car's engine. In fact, the myth that sugar will immediately and permanently damage a car's engine has been proven to be untrue multiple times, although in theory, enough granulated sugar can clog a car's fuel filter as sand might.
