In 1990 George Bush was president, the Dow Jones posted a high of 3,000, unemployment was at 5.3%, a first-class stamp cost $0.25 and gas was $1.16 a gallon.

Oh how times have changed.  In the last 13 years, clothing prices have gone up about 10%.  Sounds about right.  What ISN'T right is the cost of food -- up 82% since 1990!  Below are some prices from the 90's.  How does it compare to your grocery list today?  What gives you sticker shock at the checkout line??
