    It is a broad inflation calculator, individual commodities can and will be higher or lower than that.

    actual inflation has been estimated much higher 7-13%

    Did my pay keep up with the inflation rates of beer? That's all I really care about.
    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    Don’t know why, but I remember exactly what every item in my cart cost after I get home from the store. Three items, or thirty-five, just remember for some reason. Can’t remember 1980 but would guess 99 cents?

    Milk, eggs, and bananas all good value these days...
