WalletHub just released a list called the 2023's Most & Least Stressed Cities in America, and to our surprise, St. Louis, Missouri comes in at 9th on the list. St. Louis finished higher than New York City at 38th, Chicago at 32nd, and even Los Angeles at 48th, so how did they determine St. Louis to be so stressed? On the site, they say...

"Around 83% of Americans currently feel stressed about inflation, and 75% feel stressed about violence and crime, according to a recent survey from the American Psychological Association...To determine the cities where Americans cope best, WalletHub compared more than 180 cities across 39 key metrics. Our data set ranges from average weekly work hours to the unemployment rate to divorce and suicide rates."

St. Louis ranked 8th in the Financial Stress category (which let's be honest, money is always the thing that causes us the most stress), and St. Louis finished 17th in the Health & Safety Stress category. St. Louis even finished in the top 50 at 48th in the Work Stress category. To see the complete ranking for yourself click here!

Honestly, who isn't stressed right now? If you aren't stressed I'm jealous of you... Do you think that the city of St. Louis is so stressed because the Cardinals are last in the NL Central right now? All kidding aside, make sure you are taking care of yourself physically and mentally if you are feeling over-stressed.

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.
