In the first ten years of the 21st century, middle-class income fell but prices for many staples have risen sharply.
According to new census data, American households at the middle of the pay scale, made $49,445 last year. Even after adjusting for inflation, that means they're making about 7% less than they did just 10 years earlier.
During the same time, prices went up on new homes, healthcare, college, groceries and even movie theater tickets.
Take a look at what you paid for these common items and more in 2010, versus a decade earlier.
While middle class income is declining, the richest 10% are getting richer.
