Pizza Prices

When I was growing up in Brooklyn in the 70's I remember walking home from school and stopping at a local Pizzeria and we'd always get a pepperoni slice and a cup of soda. It was $1. Even when I first moved to Westchester in the mid-80's I could go and get a slice and a can of soda for $2. Today I went, got a slice and a bottle of lemonade, handed the guy $10 and he handed me $4 back. $6 for a slice and a drink? Where do they get the nerve to charge that much? Oh and back in the 70's the pizza was actually good!
