So, How Much Did It Cost in the 1970s?
Life was simpler in the 1970s. We didn’t have The Internet and if it did exist, it was in a scientific lab somewhere and called ARPANET.
Kids probably played outside more and didn’t have the gaming consoles we have today. They rode their bikes more.
But the question remains. How much did everything cost back then?
So let’s compare the price of things today with the price of things back then…
