Forgo The Guacamole, Oh No

This, an email from Mr. David Reynolds regarding recent price hikes, recalls the days when people knew what two quarters and two pennies were good for: exact change on a super burrito with guacamole at Anna's Taqueria.

Quoted in entirety:

Seriously, who would have thought this CPI would hit so close to home- or quite literally, my stomach? I remember the good old days when my super Carnitas, beans and rice, salsa, hot sauce and guacamole only cost $4.52. I used to keep 52 cents in my car at all times, just in case I had an unexpected Anna's attack. These days I can hardly keep pace with inflation. If this keeps up, I might have to even start forgoing the guacamole.

Dave, I miss it too. We all do. But my demand for guacamole is inelastic.
