Plot with months and years as x-axis

Postby Murd » Fri Sep 14, 2018 10:55 am


I'm currently trying to create a plot with pfgplots, that displays the price of fuel since 2005 to today. The data I have provides a data point for each month. My goal is to achieve a plot where every month is abbreviated to the first letter and then grouped by year (see image).

Does anyone know how to achieve this? I tried different approaches, but none of them brought me even close.

Perhaps a groupplot with the year as group's x-label and the months as x-ticks would do.

When I think about how much the price for fuel changes at some gas stations even within one day, one month seems oddly far spaced ;-)

In which form do you have the data? csv file? How does a sample entry look like?
