Make sure you know the difference between Memorial Day and Veterans Day.

Don't confuse Memorial Day with Veterans Day. Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the country's armed forces, while Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans and is observed in November.

It's hard to miss all the sales on clothing, pools, cars, and more but don't lose the spirit of the day. Make sure you raise a glass, have a moment of silence, and honor those servicemen and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice. Don't spend the day sleeping in or having a yard sale. Instead, please spend some time visiting a cemetery and reflecting on what our soldiers went through for our freedom.

Don't wish anyone a Happy Memorial day; It's not a holiday. It's a day of remembrance.

In 1868, Gen. John Logan declared the day for “the purpose of strewing with flowers, or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village, and hamlet churchyard in the land.

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.
