Everyone knows gas prices and food prices have spiked dramatically recently, but did you know that text costs have also shot through the proverbial roof? It costs twice as much to send and receive text messages on all four major carrier networks then it did in 2005--10 cents to 20 cents per message.

Unlike the variable supplies of both food and oil, the actual cost to the carriers for you to send a text message has not changed. The prices are jacked extremely, like 1000 times the cost to their providers. So why the price hike? Because you'll pay it, buddy.
