9. You are being deceptive, intentionally or otherwise
You have left inflation out of the picture.

25 cents in 1960 is about $1.75 today.

$1.19 in 1980 is the equivalent of $3.36 today.

The price historically is not really all that high. Certainly not as bad as you are making it sound.

We just got spoiled in the 90s.
