Fox News strikes again with another misleading graph. This time, they displayed that the price of gas seemed to be plateauing, or at least the price wasn’t increasing as quickly. Look closely however, and you’ll notice the mistake. On the X axis, time is displayed. Instead of being constant, it changes from “last year” to “last week” to “current” at equal increments.
To fix this graph, the X axis would need to increase at equal increments, for example: “12 months ago”, “6 months ago” and “Current”.
