I assume most places have experienced large price increases over the last year or so but it might be interesting to see if it has been more or less where you live. I just went to the gas station today and regular gas was $4.99. Groceries, on average, seem to have doubled over the last year. I don't rent so I can't address that. Used car prices have gone up about 35% over the last year (I bought a 2 year old car about a year ago and it's gone up that much). What has been your personal experience?
