Look at the downward trend since 1918 (adjusted for inflation of course), and then... where the hockey stick comes in. I'll let you make your own conclusions.

You sure you're looking at the graph correctly? Gas prices are pretty stable/flat since 1918 when adjusted for inflation. The black line is basically just the rate of inflation.

In 2016 dollars per InflationData.com: $3.92 in 1918; $1.48 in 1998. That's hardly flat by any measure. Then there is a huge spike in between 2000 and 2002 on the chart. Ignore the black line, we are talking inflation-adjusted cost here.

The hockey stick is the black line. The red line is fluctuation around the mean. Hockey stick graph means it was flat for a long time and then went up dramatically. That's the black line. The red line has no trend over the long term, just short term fluctuations.
