While millions are waiting to witness the total solar eclipse, there are some that are still talking about the 4.8 magnitude earthquake that took place near New York City.

The forecast is calling for clouds to take over to start the week. Experts tell us that the solar eclipse darkness will still be seen and there may be some breaks in the clouds. But beyond the weather forecast for the weather, seismologists predict that there may be some aftershocks in the New York and New Jersey areas.

This was the strongest earthquake in the area in more than 100 years and was a bit of a wake up call to some that these are possible on the east coast.

In a report from CBS and Yahoo News, it was noted that the aftershocks can extend out as far as as week after the initial earthquake. Although small, it is something that scientists and government officials are going to be watching for.

The eclipse was also a major part of the SNL broadcast this past weekend.

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.
