Have gas prices risen in the U.S.? Depends on how you pay. The table below shows gas prices measured in U.S. dollars, coffee (pounds), Venezuelan bolivars, and even movie tickets. Anything can be used as money. You will see that the price has risen measured in U.S. dollars but not as bad as the price increase measured in Venezuelan currency. While the U.S. might be running about 10 percent inflation/devaluation for the past five years, it’s been much worse in Venezuela.
