Interesting point.  All things being relative, if a shave and a haircut used 
to cost 2 bits when gas was also 2 bits a gallon, how come haircuts now cost 
many times the price of a gallon of gas?  Never mind adding the shave.  
Rhetorical question.  I'm just glad gas doesn't cost as much as a haircut 
now.  Already too expensive!
