Am I really that old?

When did Soda/Pop prices get to be so high?  I’ve been reducing my intake and only drinking splenda items (love the stuff), but I often will get a pop when I go to a restaurant.  First place- Outback Steakhouse… no prices on the back for drinks.  I check with the waiter- he says something like: $2.24.  Second place- Chilli’s, no prices- I check with the waiter, and again the price is somewhere around $2.08.  Holy cow has prices on pop jumped like mad?  I mean, for $2.16, I can buy 4 liters of pop at a local grocers.  That’s about 6-8x the amount of pop I’d drink even if I was getting a refill.

So, when did prices go so insanely high?  Am I really *that* old?  I remember when soda was less than $1 on the menu…
