We have all noticed inflation's brutal effects over the last couple of years. We all saw a gallon of gasoline move from $1/gallon to more than $4/gallon. Four times more for the same amount. We have seen inflation in nearly everything we buy, but I think I may have experienced the last straw.
You see, I had this great thing going with my favorite soda machine. It provided a cold, refreshing soda to me for the very reasonable price of $0.25. BUT NOW inflation has hit. It was not 4% inflation. It was not 15% inflation. No. It was 100% inflation!
My now-not-so-favorite soda machine will no longer deliver a cold, refreshing soda for $0.25. Instead, it just sits there and asks for more money. Another $0.25 to be exact.
This inflation thing is brutal.
