We have come a long way. I remember when I used to be able to buy a soda for $.89. Today they're $1.89. When I was in high school (he said in his best 'in my day' old man voice) gas was just over $1.00 a gallon. Add inflation, supply and demand, and a struggling economy in the mix and prices are ridiculous.


I found this picture that shows the relative prices of certain necessities back in 1938. Here's a link to the discussion on Reddit.com.

Do you remember how much things cost back in the day? Call the show if you have an example. 764-ROCK. You can also tell us on Facebook.
