Truthfully, as well as sharing this man's conundrum, I wanted to drop some "here's when this and that started" but the research isn't as easy as I thought. I wanted to first explain when people started giving their vehicles names. Surprisingly, even Google Search scratches its head over the question. (Yo, Elon Musk, can you buy Google and find an answer? Thanks.)

Next, I wanted to share when the recent Jeep obsession became but that's a stalemate too.


It's safe to say you either like Jeep models or you don't care for them at all. Personally, I've always wanted a 2000 Jeep Wrangler. I don't know when the obsession started or why but it's on my list of "must-haves before I die." Along with owning a Jeep, I would love to belong to a club like Screw City Jeeps 815, a group you may have seen driving together around Northern Illinois.

The real reason I want a Jeep isn't because of a club though...


I want to play Duck, Duck, Jeep. I want to not only walk out to my Jeep and find a rubber duck waiting for me but I want to give them out too.

Do you know when the whole Jeep/duck thing began? (what a great URL) says it started in 2020 in Ontario, Canada. You can read about it here.


A Rockton, Illinois man recently bought a Jeep and now needs help coming up with a name. This man, whom many know simply as "Peavy", reached out to me to give my opinion on some of his ideas. They were all "meh" and I was honest about it before he got stuck with a less-than-exciting label for his vehicle.

Here's his Jeep...

Ok, let's help me in naming this girl!

For reasons I don't want to even ask, he's clarified this is a female Jeep. So, with that in mind, what should he name his Jeep? He's looking for something "not obvious." Send your suggestions here or drop them in a comment.

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.
