 1 Bus. Stats 1020-400 14 February 2008 U.S. Fuel Prices U.S. gas prices are constantly fluctuating in every way conceivable way, day to day as  well as location from location. It is probably the most unstable product on the market purchased  by nearly every single American adult on a weekly basis. I have gone about collecting  information from the websites http://www.fuelgaugereport.com/sbsavg.asp  and  http://www.encompassmag.com/aaa/fuel_prices.html  and have interpreted the information I  acquired using a histogram, scatterplot, and line chart to present to you the national and current  averages of fuel prices in a clear and concise report. The histogram shows in detail the national  average for unleaded gas, while the scatterplot explains the correlation between the national  averages for premium gas and diesel fuel. The line chart brings everything closer to home by  showing the average gas prices for Colorado over the last thirteen weeks. To better understand and comprehend regular unleaded gas price averages I have  created a histogram with four numerical summaries showing the average gas prices for all the  states in the U.S.A.
