Butter was significantly cheaper in 1957.

Maybe Father knew best in 1957, but he probably didn't have a clue about how much Mother forked over at the grocery store for his tuna noodle casserole. He made about $4,494 a year, paid about $20,000 for his house, $2,500 for his Ford, and roughly 27 cents a gallon to fill 'er up at the gas pump.

In this list, we'll see how deep Mother had to dig into her pocketbook at the grocery store checkout.
