Uber said it will re-evaluate the surcharge in 60 days. (WILX)

Now you have to decide if it'll be cheaper to drive and go get your own food.

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.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
