In the early 2000s house paint is almost lead-free, gasoline is unleaded, and household plumbing is no longer made with lead materials.
However, on the same day just one short year later, the price for a gallon of unleaded gasoline has risen to a U.S. average of $2.63.
Fuel stations in the Midwest, Minnesota and Illinois are offering E85 fuel, often at lower prices per gallon than traditional unleaded fuel.
In Missouri, the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is estimated to be approximately $2.46 statewide.
Many individual compounds are carcinogenic, including benzene, which is added to unleaded gasoline.
