Why not? The idea may sound ridiculous, but so does the idea of $100 per gallon of gas in 2035. Our current currency will have to change at some point. They're already thinking of phasing out the penny and possible the nickel. Why should we have to eliminate them to keep up with the trend of inflation? Why can't we revert back to 1975 prices? Or, even keep the prices we have now. We all know that the way things are going, a slice of pizza could well be $6 to $8 in thirty years. Why can't we keep prices the way they are now -- even if it means we all have to lose out on a ton of raises. It's obvious that ultimately, our merchandise will increase in cost to keep the overall proportion about the same, anyway.
