No doubt everyone is noticing that the gasoline prices have shot up. In our area, the price of a gallon of regular gasoline is $3.25, diesel is a surprising $2.75/gallon. But where does this stand with the other necessities of life?

A pack of cigarettes – $4.75 (from a billboard outside a gas station)
