I did some research today at our public library for a local project I'm working on. Today, I was reviewing our local newspaper and was noticing many ads of the day. 1985. Ground beef $0.99/lb, , tires $42, gasoline $1.28/gal, new suit $68, 6 large bell peppers $0.68, new Cadillac $16K. Interest rate on the new caddie 8.8%. Wish I had started buying BTC back in 1985. Oh, Wait.. never mind.
