Your dollar used to go a lot further.
In 1955, 60 years ago, McDonald's fries went for $0.10. Today, a small fry will cost you $1.29.
That price change is at least in part due to inflation: A dime in 1955 equates to $0.89 today, according to the US Inflation Calculator.
We took a look at what 16 things used to cost in the US over the last century and what they cost today. The differences may surprise you.
