[CentOS] CentOS automatically blocks port 80 out-of-the-box

Maybe I just haven't installed enough distros, but the times I've installed CentOS, I've had to remember that by default, iptables is blocking inbound port 80 requests. This leads me to believe that I have a non-OS firewall error because I can ping but not http request. 

Is there a particular reason for this? Or is it a fail on my end?

Thanks,
