That was then.

Today is my 35 wedding anniversary so I decided to take a look at what prices were in 1986. We complain about how expensive everything has gotten, let’s take a look.
If you wanted to buy a house, your mortgage rate would be 10.19% vs. 2.47% today.
A gallon of gas was .86 vs. $3.72
A Rib eye steak cost $3.89/pound vs. $8.00/pound today.
I drive an Audi, in 1986 I would have paid $17,800 vs. a starting price of $39,000 today.
A lot has changed for the worse in 35 years, what has not is how much I love my Husband – that has grown with the prices!
