1968 Cost of Living

Aloha Everyone,

While we waited for our lunch at the Peggy Sue's 50's Diner, J.J. and I were entertained by a small booklet which contained 1968 Cost of Living data. While some of you may have not been born, I thought you might find this informative and interesting.

$14,975 - Cost of a New House
$7,844 - Average Income
$2,822 - Cost of a New Car                                        
$130/mo - Average Rent
$2,000/year - Tuition to Harvard University
34 cents a gallon - Gasoline
6 cents each - First Class Postage Stamp

Aloha -- Cathi
