According to, Yuengling is officially expanding into Missouri, Kansas, and Oklahoma. If you have no idea what Yuengling is, it is the oldest brewery in America debuting 193 years ago in Pennsylvania. And historically Yuengling has always stayed exclusively on the East Coast, but after expanding to Texas a couple of years ago they are now adding Missouri, Kansas, and Oklahoma, on the site they say...

"The expansion is part of a joint-venture between D.G. Yuengling & Son Inc. and Molson Coors Beverage Company designed to expand the 193-year-old Pennsylvania brewery’s distribution to 25 states west of the Mississippi River...Under the expansion, the three states will receive all Yuengling beers brewed at Molson Coors’ Fort Worth brewery, including its flagship Traditional Lager, Light Lager 99, Golden Pilsner and FLIGHT."

I discovered Yuengling in my early twenties on a trip to Florida with my dad and brothers, my older brother told me all about it being the oldest brewery in the US and exclusively selling on the East Coast. While I am sad for the rest of my people here in the Land of Lincoln that we haven't gotten out hands-on Yuengling yet, it is available in Indiana and now Missouri, so it looks like Ill be crossing the river from Quincy to Missouri to start buying my beer when I get my gas.

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.
