Detergent was added to Agamont Park's fountain in Bar Harbor overnight, so Monday morning, June 27, residents and tourists woke up to a sudsy fountain. What some people may see as a harmless joke that doesn't hurt anyone is in fact an act of vandalism.

The fountain will now be out of order for at least the majority of Monday. The cleaning of the fountain will take a crew from the Highway Division the better part of the day as they thoroughly remove the suds, and clean all the soap out of the fountain and its inner-workings. They also then have to refill the fountain.

An already short-handed crew will not be able to complete other tasks around the Town, as they get ready for the 4th of July.

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.
