Rising Gas Prices

By | source: Jul 5th, 2012

Ah the good olâ?? days. When the temperature was cooler, I was thinner, and gas was below $2.00. I remember my mother shrieking in astonishment at her first glimpse of $1.50 gas price. Today, gas isnâ??t all too bad where I live; right now itâ??s at $2.81 and keeps going down every few days. However, itâ??s still expensive enough to where I had to decline an internship an hour away because of gas prices.

Todayâ??s inforgraphic gives a historical overview of when gas prices began to inflate. It also lists when theater and tuition prices began to rise as well. I remember when movie tickets prices were low and going to an evening movie was the place to be. Now, an evening movie ticket sells for $12.00 each! Sorry Matthew McConaughey and Channing Tatum, but Iâ??ll have to resist seeing yaâ??ll on the big screen this weekâ?¦

In all, the price of living has become a burden on the public. Inflation has caused the average Joe to re-evaluate his priorities and watch his checkbook. However, the good life can still be lived if we all make some budgeting and make a nice meal at home instead of going out. Perhaps itâ??s an activity that will bring the family together like the good olâ?? days. [via]
