St. 1: Was the cost just for gasoline, or did the $7.90 include other costs as well? Insuff. St. 2: Insuff. Combined: Still insuff, so E. Unless$7.90 is the cost of gasoline alone, then C

But how can that be C as long as we don't have any clue of the year we want to compare 1980.
if we want to compare 81 to 80 then answer is C
but otherwise we can't know.
So answer can only be E
