One surfer asked me how much a $2.50 milk shake would have cost back in 1958.
Well, after I shuddered at the thought of paying $2.50 for a milkshake, I
went to find the CPI data sitting on the
Labor Bureau's web site. And I thought
this was kind of neat so I whipped up a little calculator to compare prices
over the years using the government's statistics (hey, you paid for them!)
