Good Jokes To Know

*The airfare prices are in 1995 dollars, and the crude oil prices are in 2010 dollars. The point of this isn’t to compare dollars to dollars, but to show that over the past 15 years, airline prices have gone down compared to the CPI, while oil prices have sky-rocketed. Remember that fuel prices now comprise 30-40% of airline’s expenses.
