Pumped up: A look at how the price of gas has risen

 / Pumped up: A search at how the value of gasoline has risen

You likely really don’t need a extravagant Domo chart to convey to you that gas has gotten fairly pricey. But we went forward and imported weekly regular gas costs from the U.S. Electricity Info Company anyway. In carrying out so, we also get to take a look at just one of my beloved new features in Domo: Intelligent Textual content, which allows you insert dynamic text within both of those notebook cards and in the title for any card in Domo. So, when you select anything other than “United States” from the fall-down menu below “Geo Name” (under), it will also adjust the chart next to it (“United States-Typical Weekly Gasoline Prices”) to whichever location, state, or metropolis you selected.

Likewise, the time time period will change from “Last 30 Years” when I pick a various date range, or highlight a specific area in the line graph. “The Min Gas Price” and “Max Gasoline Price” textual content use Domo dynamic summary numbers, which allow for me to insert metrics to my narrative. These are terrific equipment for ensuring that people have the suitable context even as they self-provide with various filters and drills.

You will also discover here that we are experimenting with a narrative feature (still in pre-beta), which dynamically generates insights about a specified card in Domo. I seriously like this element due to the fact it assists bring new insights out of details in a narrative format. As you filter for a new geography or a unique time time period, the narrative refreshes with new insights. Quite darn neat, if you check with me.

Because we released “Domo on Details,” we have been quite focused on U.S. facts. Which is a great deal to the chagrin of some of my colleagues all over the earth, but it just has to do with the problem in acquiring metrics from other governments, which have a tendency to be fantastic at providing no cost knowledge but negative at compiling across nations around the world. That stated, for this submit, we were being ready to obtain some info on world wide gasoline charges by using the World wide Petrol Selling prices site. The data is not out there for totally free, but does give us some good context. For occasion, while gasoline in the U.S. is extra than $4 per gallon, it’s virtually $11 in Hong Kong and only a little less than that in the Netherlands. Yikes.

We will do the job to bring a lot more world data to these internet pages in coming posts. Oh, and if you are asking yourself when the very last time gasoline was under $1 for every gallon in the U.S., the answer is March 1999. How I extensive for those people days!
