math question about inflation?

1. Amy, a senior, bought a car last year so that she could drive to school on the days when she needed to stay after class for practice. She spent $155 last year for gas. This year she spent $195. Disregarding other factors, what is the inflation rate?

A. 27.1%

B. 25.2%

C. 26.8%

I’m leaning towards D, but I could be completely wrong. Thank you all for your time!
