Nice graphic on how some things have changed since the year 2000...

Technology use by the masses has really taken off in 10 years...Quite incredible if you stop to think about it...The price of gas intrigued me.  From 2000 until today (roughly $2.89) the price has increased 95%. Taking into account inflation, $1.48 in 2000 is the equivalent to $1.88 today (inflation calculator HERE).  In other words, if gas prices had simply increased in price along with the prices of everything else, as measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI), we should be able to buy gas for $1.88 a gallon (a 27% increase).
