- I'll tell you one thing , if things keep going the way they are, it's going to be impossible to buy a week's groceries for $20.
- Have you seen the new cars coming out next year? It won't be long before $2000 will only buy a used one.
- If cigarettes keep going up in price, I'm going to quit. A quarter a pack is ridiculous.
- Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging a dime just to mail a letter?
Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging a dime just to mail a letter?In 1955, first-class postage cost 3¢ per ounce, and that rate had been unchanged since 1932. The first-class rate was not raised again until 1958, and even then it went up only one cent, to 4¢ per ounce. It was not until 1974, nearly two decades after 1955, that the cost of first-class postage was raised to 10¢ per ounce.
Ahhh, the good old days that never were.....
