No doubt everyone is noticing that the gasoline prices have shot up.  In our area, the price of a gallon of regular gasoline is $3.25, diesel is a surprising $2.75/gallon.  But where does this stand with the other necessities of life?

The average Starbucks coffee – $3.00 for an 8 ounce cup (that’s $48/gallon!)

A pack of cigarettes – $4.75 (from a billboard outside a gas station)

Movie with popcorn & drink (1 person) – $14.00

Monthly cell phone bill – $50.00 (if you have a good plan & watch the minutes)

Dinner for two at a decent restaurant – $50.00

Average price for a music CD – $15.00

Gallon of milk (on sale) – $1.89

Your freedom in this country – Priceless!

Just thought that things should be put in perspective…
