If the tagline "I'd rather deal with the Duells" rings a bell, you're probably a current or former Evansville resident. The Duell Automotive Group has been a tri-state household name since the 1980s. But it was announced in a press release that Doug Duell and his family have handed over the "keys" to Duell's Evansville Kia to St. Louis-based Lou Fusz Automotive Group, and Doug will be starting a new chapter as a consultant on the store’s day-to-day operations.

“We’re incredibly excited to grow our brand into the great state of Indiana. This acquisition is the first step in our goal to expand throughout the Midwest. Our network takes pride in not only delivering on our pledge to support the community but also providing our customers with an outstanding experience," said CEO Randy Fusz of Lou Fusz Automotive Network. “We count it a privilege to take on this Duell Family-owned and operated dealership and we plan to continue the family-run business style the store has known over the last 30 years.”

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.
