Buenos aires: Day 4 : Prices in general

O yes, the prices have increased. For example bus and subway. Bus used to be 80 Centavos and is now 1 Peso. The Subway was 70 Centavos and is now 90 Centavos. The coffee I'm having right now (Doble expresso) is 6.5 Pesos. And that is not downtown. U easily pay 10 pesos there.

Other prices have increased too. Inflation, Also a not so good Dollar - Peso rate. When i was still here they always kept it around 3 Pesos for 1 US $. That couldn't be kept.

All in all if u live here and don't see ur income rise u have a harder time for an already hard time for most. For me familiar shops have closed as well. Not sure if that has anything to do with it.
