Plans are already underway to expand I-94 to three lanes in that corridor as soon as 2024. It is the last remaining section of I-94 that's programmed to be updated to three lanes in each direction between Clearwater and Maple Grove.

The preliminary design is underway, but the project scope is yet to be determined depending on available funding.

A final concept will be completed by the Minnesota Department of Transportation and work could begin as soon as 2024.

It will take a minimum of two years to complete that project.

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. 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.

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