It is HOT...in case you couldn't tell.

I am usually ready to bake in the sun but health professionals are urging New Jersey residents to only go outside for short bursts while we ride out the rest of this heat wave.

But sometimes that isn't enough.

Cooling centers are being set up throughout New Jersey to help everyone combat this intense heat no matter their living situation.

If you are looking to find the closest one to you, you can dial 2-1-1. You can also visit NJ211.org.

But wouldn't it just be easier if I showed you all the cooling centers in Monmouth & Ocean counties?

I thought so.

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.
