CrisisWhatCrisisPricesIn1954 Photo Does the current economic crisis have you struggling to make ends meet? When you look at your 401k do you wonder if you will ever be able to retire? Let's take a look at 1954, the year I was born, and see what Americans paid for things way back then. My information comes from fiftiesweb.com and tvhistory.com. When my sources did not agree, I chose the lower price listed. Oh, if only we could pay what we did then.

Great game--but remember, I only made 50 cents an hour in 1954.

This was a surprise. I was only 3 that year, so I don't remember prices too well. I remember prices from the early 60s. If these prices are right--and I'm sure they are--prices didn't change much over the next 10 years. I remember my parents buying a nice house for $16,000 in the mid-60s. I remember paying around a dollar a pound for steak in the late 60s. I paid 21 cents a gallon for gas in 1969! Again, very interesting.
