On June 1 Amtrak posted a short video advertisement on Amtrak's Missouri River Runner Facebook page, and River Runner riders and Missourians immediately pointed out the obvious.

Take a look at the advertisement/post on Facebook, and see if you notice anything that seems off:

It's simple, the exterior views of the trains and the spectacular scenery of its surroundings certainly isn't Missouri. It's either Amtrak's service in California or their service in the Pacific Northwest. And people immediately started noticing it and commenting on it.

Harvey Munshaw had this to say as one of the first commenters. "Did Missouri add mountains between KC and STL in the past 10 years? Seriously though, I love the River Runner and during my college days I took it all the time between Kansas City and Warrensburg."

Joe Cordona thinks that someday there may be coastal areas of Missouri, "Maybe with global warming Missouri will be a coast one day."

And Roxanne Robertson says, "We have Amtrak. However, we certainly don't have any beaches that look like that. Nor mountains."

Now the overall aim of the video, showing that traveling on the train can be fun and comfortable isn't necessarily a bad thing. Neither is the copy that accompanies the video. "Discover world-class museums, top live shows, scenic outdoor fun & more in the Show-Me State for your Spring/Summer getaway!"

Having ridden on more than a few Amtrak trains over the past four decades I can tell you the interior shots and the interactions the people are having on the train are entirely plausible to have on the River Runner. So overall, I don't think it's a bad example of the experience you can have on Amtrak. It's just that yeah, the exterior shots of the train aren't in Missouri or even the Midwest.

That's OK though. There are some exciting things going on with Amtrak's Missouri River Runner. Such as the reinstatement of the second daily train between St. Louis and Kansas City next week, and the extension of the other train letting people travel between Chicago and Kansas City without having to change trains in St. Louis.

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.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
