Fast Food Prices Are Getting Out Of Hand In Eugene, Oregon!

Burger King Outdoor Sign Inflation and rising food prices are causing many Eugene, Oregon residents to shop more carefully so that there is enough in the paycheck to last through the month.

Fortunately, fast food prices haven't risen to the level advertised on a street sign in front of a Burger King on West 11th Avenue in west Eugene.  Only a king could afford a $499 meal deal every weekday that this sign promotes.  Even if fries came with the meal, I don't think my budget can handle many of these meal deals!

In spite of the price tag on the sign, the cashier only charged me $4.99 when I ordered my King Meal Deal.  The dollar still has value here after all.
