The recent President’s Day holiday got me thinking about history. Specifically the historical cost of living in America. Take a look at the cost of “the basics” 100 years ago.
The average house cost: $5,935
The average car cost: $690 **As ofthe 1920’s only 1 in 5 Americans owned a car – today there are an average of 2.28 vehicles owned per household in our country!
The average annual wage: $564
Last year’s averages:
Annual Wage: $44,670
