Inflation is now generally accepted as just another part of life. According to the CPI Inflation Calculator, the cost of
living, groceries, and petrol has all climbed over time, with the value of a dollar decreasing by 4% annually.
The US Department of Energy reports that in 1972, the average price of gasoline in America was under $0.36 a gallon. The current national average price per gallon is $3.9.
Burger King, like other fast food restaurants, has felt the effects of inflation, and as a result, it has taken the Whopper off of its discount menu.
Fast food outlets, facing growing expenses for materials and labour, have reportedly responded by advertising more costly combination meals and increasing pricing on cheaper products.
According to the website Fast Food Menu Prices, the average price of a Burger King Whopper in 2018 is above $4.
The Gainesville Sun reported that the price of a Whopper was much lower when it was first sold in 1957.
One of the greatest fast food burgers in the United States first launched at this eatery for a mere $.37.
In 1957, a quarter-pound of juicy, flavorful burgers sold for less than the price of a stamp today.
