US gas prices have hit their lowest point in recent history, falling to levels last seen before the Great Recession. According to The New York Times, the national average fell to $2.18 a gallon in July.
Since gas prices have become inextricably linked to the American road trip, comparing how far a tank will get you on US highways is a useful point of comparison for prices at the pump.
The cost-information website How Much, with an assist from SVM, put together some vividly colored maps to illustrate how far $50 worth of gas would take you from major American cities, based on the average gas prices in June for the years 2005, 2008, 2011, 2014, 2015, and 2016 and assuming that your car gets 24 miles a gallon.
Summer road-trip season is wrapping up, so check out how far you can go below.
