Not sure about '95 but I know around '95 McDonalds would have specials where the Big Mac was $.99 or 2 for $2. The meal was also $2.99 for the longest time. When it jumped above $3 it seemed the price moved up quickly from there. That's good though. In high school I could put multiple Big Macs away in a sitting and never see the difference. That would certainly no longer be true.

Oh I see, it shows up at the end. I did fairly mediocre!

10%.....humiliating! The only one I got right was the price of postage.

In 1997, I was spending mad babysitting money so I didn't pay super close attention to prices. And also I predominantly shopped at Delia's.
