The different things that I looked at were, average prices of regular unleaded gas throughout the 50 states, average prices of premium unleaded and diesel fuel, and Colorado’s average weekly gas prices.

Looking at the scatter plot it is seen as somewhat of a line going upwards to the right. The diesel and premium unleaded prices seem to be really close to each other. This makes sense when thinking in real terms of how much specialization goes into the two.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
