Yup, and expect the prices to continue to go up with another round of Quantitative Easing on the horizon (i.e the Fed printing more money)
My grocery bill has more than doubled in the last 5 years.
This is what you get with a devalued dollar.
And you also get a higher stock market, and people aren't rioting because their 401k's aren't high enough to retire on. Even though, you aren't going to be able to afford a $40,000 new car that used to be $20,000.
You also get people working past 65 instead of training the younger generation and lowering their unemployment rate.
That is why I am buying lenses and camera gear. There might be some improvements in the future, but sharp pictures will still be sharp 20 years from now.
I echo the doubling of the bills. Even restaurants are charging nearly double what they used to cost in 2000.
Gentlemen, the time to buy and hoard Canon lenses is now!
