Some were speculating whether Carter Burnett would hang in there and get the votes needed for 2nd place in the She Thinks Her Trucker's Sexy Photo Contest sponsored by Murphy Excavating. It was a tight race between Rob Young, Andrew Dill, and Carter, but family and friends came through for the JR Expedited Freight driver. He was able to squeak out a victory with 5,812 votes.

Carter is always willing to help others without expecting something in return. This positive characteristic will make him a successful truck driver. The lifestyle isn't for everyone with long hours, being away from family, and loneliness on the road. This is one of the many reasons why everyone should thank a trucker today! The industry plays such an important role in the economy, and we're grateful for Carter, and all of the hard-working truckers who sacrifice so much for our well-being.

"Carter has worked for JR Expedited Freight for over a year in a half now. He is constantly on the road loading & unloading plastic pellets to keep companies running. He is very family oriented, therefore this job doesn’t come easy for him. He is the most hard-working person I know & is so passionate about his job and the people that he works with. He is the person that you can call for anything even if it means putting in an extended amount of overtime. It’s not just the looks on why he should get your vote it’s his serving heart." - Makenzie Hays

Carter is heading for some fun in the sun at Holiday World & Splashin' Safari.

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.
