For residents in Park County preparing for 4th of July celebrations, this news may be a bit disappointing.

Park County has implemented Stage 2 Fire Restrictions on June 30. The new restrictions prohibit the use of fireworks, with the exception of the Livingston Roundup and Cooke City Fireworks shows.

For individuals that plan on going offroad this weekend, operating a motorized vehicle off of designated roads and trails has also been prohibited.

The announcement is in response to extreme fire conditions and limited resources. The picture below outlines what Stage 2 Fire Restrictions prohibit.

Luckily, residents of Livingston will still be able to see a fireworks show. Fireworks are scheduled after dark every night after the Livingston Roundup July 2 - July 4. To check out the full schedule for the Livingston Roundup, click here.

The City of Livingston announced its own set of fire restrictions on June 28.

For Bozeman residents, no restrictions are currently in place. However, City of Bozeman officials are asking residents to find an alternative to fireworks this year.

Though this one of the few times a year, when Bozeman residents are legally allowed to use fireworks within city limits, celebrating unwisely, could lead to the loss of life or property.

Communications Coordinator Melody Mileur said.

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.
