Nostalgia

You forget a lot in 3 years. From Politico:

“The day that the president became president gasoline was $1.79 a gallon. Look at what it is today,” she said at an event in Greenville, S.C.. “Under President Bachmann, you will see gasoline come down below $2 a gallon again. That will happen.”

It was really that cheap? Seriously?

I was so struck by the price of produce at the grocery store last week. Meat, too. And how could I forget coffee? My normal splurge coffee has gone up by $2 a (small) bag. Avocados are double the price from last summer. I know because we used to eat quite a few.

What say you? Are you feeling pinched, too, or is it just me flabbergasted at the grocery store?
