Back in 2003, I was driving north on Highway 61 and going on the overpass where highways 61 and 24 meet. I hit a pothole that completely destroyed my tire. That was not a good day. Now there is another in a similar place.

Here's the exact place on Highway 61 in Missouri that this new massive pothole resides.

From a driver's perspective, this is the place to watch out for this pothole. The problem with the location of this bad boy is that it aligns almost too perfectly with where your right-side tires are.

I have just submitted this to the Missouri Department of Transportation on their website where you can also report problem spots on the road. The road repair crews can't obviously be everywhere at once. So for now, be warned if you travel on this overpass where Highway 61 and Highway 24 meet near West Quincy that your tires are in danger.

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.
