The Business of Changing Times,,,,,


,,,OK, like it or not, whichever side of the political fence you currently throw your schitt across, the simple fact is the Business of Doing Business is about to change. For better or worse remains to be seen I suppose.

The point of this thread is to document current prices for things (goods and services) that are important to your business, but more importantly current prices as they relate directly to you and your family.

Please, no attacking Trump or Biden. Lets just put the facts here and let them lie where they fall so as to look back later and see what we didn't see.


OK, Ill start.

Gas where I live and buy it is just under $2.00 a gallon.

I have Blue Cross Blue Shield Insurance thru the State of North Carolina (my wife is a teacher) and I pay $540 a month for pretty good insurance.

A case of Bud heavy is $17 at Walmart and closer to $20 at Publix

I had my teeth cleaned last week (no insurance) cost me $117

Lean ground beef at Publix is $3.79 a pound

Shrimp/ Frozen 31/35's at $5.99 a pound

The Dow Jones hit 30,400 just the other day

My overall financial portfolio went up (just a thumbnail) a little over 25%

I could go on and on, but you get the idea. Try and not fukkk it up

OK, whos next?

I figured you would have had a couple more replies.
I guess we're doing this in the order of priorities.
🍺🍺🍻 Corona $20 a12 pack
The wife and I $1,200 a month for insurance. And with deductible and copay usually adds up to about another $15,000 a year. And that's not counting things they deny.fortunately the VA bills my insurance companies. so that goes towards some of our deductible which is a big help
I'm guessing gas is going to be around 4 to 5 bucks a gallon this time next year . I know a guy that works oil rigs. He's been laid off indefinitely. Productive rig but they shut it down.$$$$
Lumber prices OSB 23 bucks a sheet. 2×4-8 $6 & jingle change
2×12-8pt $26.
Weed $200 a oz.
300 mg Wonka candy bars $30
Hahaha. Maybe that should have been up by the beer.

Probably get them mid February. They're holding the price for all orders that were put in before the first of the year..

If this is truly apolitical then why hasn't anyone mentioned interest rates... Gotta have it for our debt fueled economy...

Interest rates are the most critical aspect of our economy...

Peepal, since you are behind on your payments, do me a favor and please post up the 10 year treasury on the date of the OP... The rates have risen since then...

Your Pal,

You are correct, current interest along with savings rates need to be here for an apples to apples comparison. If Mr. Pod doesn't mind, I'll fill in those blanks as best I can.

the 10 year Treasure Yield was at 0.93%

You can refinance your primary home today at just under 3% on a 30 year fixed

Money Market accounts are currently paying .05% with a $50,000 minimum

24 month CD's yield .04% with a $50,000 minimum

Most of these numbers were ripped off Wells Fargo or Truist Websites just now.

Note for NN's post which is good...
