You don't, or not exactly. You could make the three columns strings, then add them together. I would then use the lubridate package to convert to a date. The first four lines of code are just getting a bit of data into R. The lubridate package will also work with date-time objects if you have time.
year<-rep("2021",4)
month<-c(7,8,9,11)
day<-c(25,27,26,4)
fuel<-c(50.45, 61.48,59.07,55.40)
df<-data.frame(year,month,day,fuel)
df$day <-as.character(df$day)
df$month<-as.character(df$month)
df$date <- paste(year,"/",month,"/",day)
library(lubridate)
df$date<-ymd(df$date)
Regards,
Tim

Greg,
It looks like you mean to have a data.frame containing the year as a column then Month, Day and something called Fuel.
You only made a vector called Fuel, with no name as part of it and plotted it.
So you did not expect any names, I assume.
You probably want to combine the first three columns into holding some kind of date object with something like as.Date("2021-07-25") for each row and make a vector of those. Your data.frame might then contain two columns called Date and Fuel and you might use whatever plotting method to put Fuel on the Y axis and dates on the X axis or whatever makes sense. Plotting four independent columns will not work here.
And note the NAMES go in with something like:
mydata <- data.frame(Date=dates, Fuel=Fuel) I have not done all the work but hopefully this is helpful.

# Column 1 is the Year
# Column 2 is the Month
# Column 3 is the Day
# Column 4 is the Fuel
Fuel <- c(50.45, 61.48, 59.07, 55.40, 30.63, 41.35, 32.81, 49.86, 62.99, 89.37) plot (Fuel)
2021 7 25 50.45
2021 8 27 61.48
2021 9 26 59.07
2021 11 4 55.40
2021 11 22 30.63
2021 11 26 41.35
2021 12 6 32.81
2022 1 14 49.86
2022 4 29 62.99
2022 6 11 89.37
How do I "teach" R that columns 1, 2, and 3 are the Year-Month-Day?
