RE: Week 16: Pain at the Pump
This visualization is an example of parallel coordinates. The attributes displayed are gas price, unaffordability (in terms of portion of a day's wage needed to buy one gallon of gas), and percentage of income spent on gas. The dataset contains values of these three attributes for selected countries.

Since this is a parallel coordinate visualization, the major encoding channel is spatial position. It also uses color (hue) as an encoding channel. Color is used to represent different clusters, clustered by continent.

The interaction of this parallel coordinate visualization is very good. We can highlight a single country and select clusters. Navigations are also provided for users to switch between countries, time, and units.

However, filtering is not provided for this parallel coordinate visualization.

Overall this is a very good visualization, since parallel coordinate is a very effective tool to compare multiple attributes simultaneously.

However, I do have some concern regarding the color channel used here. Since the line segements representing the countries cluster in space at certain regions, it is not easy to tell the actual color. For example, the bottom part of unaffordability. We may solve this issue by expanding the space for the vertical axes.
