Is this sign made out of vibranium?

Who doesn't love going on a road trip and seeing that sign welcoming you to a new state? Well, one is lucky to be standing this morning over in Cimmaron County, Oklahoma. The sign that welcomes folks coming in from the Amarillo area of Texas into the state had a big rig truck run into it.

The local sheriff's office said no one was injured in the crash, which is definitely good to hear. However I have several questions. Where is the hood to truck? How did this truck driver get so far off the road? Some of the comments say the curve up the road can be bad and also judging by the photos. Fog could have been a factor this morning in the crash.


Hopefully, this guy didn't fall asleep at the wheel. I'm just surprised that the sign was able to take the force of big rig truck. I thought it would have gone right through like the Hulk tearing through a building. Crazy to think the welcome sign is in better shape than some of those Oklahoma roads I drive on.

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.
