In 1968 the price of a barrel OPEC crude was $1.32 and 50 years later it increased more than 50 times to about $70 a barrel. In the same time the price of gold rose 30 times from $43 to $1290 a fine ounce!
These skyrockets took everything else with them up to a "Big Bang" that's bound to happen soon. Yes, the price of everything went up, except for the Blood of Jesus that has never lost its Power and can never be devalued. The Bible says "it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed...but with the precious blood of Christ..." (1Pet.1:18-19)
