1954 Food Prices?

Answer

It is common knowledge amongst most Americans that food prices as well as the prices for most things in 1954 were much cheaper than in 2013. For example, the price for a gallon of milk in 1952 was .92 cents. However, due to inflation, the price of a gallon of milk in 2013 is easily over $3 a gallon depending on one's location. Many other things were considered much cheaper by modern standards, with bread being only .17 cents, gas costing only .21 cents a gallon, and a postage stamp costing only .03 cents to send a letter.
