Explore Your Birthdate

I’m a sucker for stuff like this, so I couldn’t help myself and had to find out what the world was like on the day I was born.  Here’s what I discovered about the year in which I was born (1953):

  • gas cost $.29 a gallon
  • a first class stamp cost $.03
  • the average cost of a house was $17,400
  • but, the average income was $4,706 per year and the minimum wage was $.75 per hour

I also discovered I share a birthday with Judd Hirsch, Sly Stone, and Mike Love of the Beach Boys.  Although this is a UK website, the information is not restricted to the US.
