91. Let's see who the moron is
Go to, oh, every economics department in the United States with the OP's post and say, "gee, professors...I'd like to see how these nominal gas prices
compare in constant dollars. I'm too dumb to do it myself; can you do it for me?"

First, they'd refer you to the freshmen taking Econ 101. Then they'd all give you more or less the same answer, depending on
whether they use monthly, quarterly, or annual price deflators.

You and your websites are a special case of the adage that you can prove anything with statistics, so long as you move the goalposts wherever you happen to need them at the moment.
