The overview needs to highlight trends, differences or stages. Here I would suggest it needs to cover:

1) There is no clear overall trend either up or down across the whole period.

2) There seems to have been an overall rise in the early years, followed by a sharp fall, and moderate recovery to original levels.

3) The price seems to have fluctuated somewhat throughout.

'Peak' is both verb and noun.
