According to the Wall Street Journal's Best and Worst Airports of 2022 ranking the St, Louis Airport ranks as the 15th best Midsized US Airport. On the site they say...

"This year’s airport report card ranks the 50 largest U.S. airports on 19 factors from on-time performance and security waits to J.D. Power customer-satisfaction score and ticket prices. Reliability matters most to passengers and carries the most weight in our rankings."

The St. Louis Airport ranks right above the Kansas City Airport, which comes in 16th on the list of midsized airports, and is shockingly behind airports like the Oakland airport, and the Pittsburgh airport.

Some of the other airports that make the ranking you may use if you live here in the Tri-States are Midway airport in Chicago, which comes in as the 20th best-midsized airport. And of course, O'hare International Airport in Chicago, which comes in as the 14th best large airport. To see the full rankings for yourself click here!

I will say I'm afraid I have to disagree with a lot of these rankings, first off, the St. Louis airport is a great midsized airport. I have traveled out of there a couple of times and I have always had fast, easy, and reliable service. The lines in security have never been long, and there are plenty of decent food and drink options while you wait. I will add that it is CRAZY that O'Hare is that low on the list, O'Hare is terrific for a major airport.

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.
