Sorry Aaron that was a sale item that ended in December. It was a short time promo. It sells for $1.29 at our location. There are some other deals going on right now like the Jumbo Deal and 2 for 3$ croissant sandwiches.

You shouldn't harass her, or actually be more of a smartass to her through the drive thru because its not like she makes the price. Prices rise due to inflation. Go to McDonalds then.

I don't get the point--if this was a promo or a recently repriced item---was "Aaron" trying to get her to eventually give him the burger for a buck? if all he had was 1.00, why didn't he pick the one that was 99 cents, as she had mentioned?

Businesses need to make money. Our food prices have gone up, the states minimum wage has gone up, and our taxes have gone up (they will go up even more now that the two new state tax measures passed). We can't leave our prices the same forever.

I know that you will say that the minimum wage didn't go up this year, but it has the past several years. You mentioned that the price has been the same for several years, so the minimum wage has had an impact on this product.

Everything in Oregon is hyper-inflated, always. We have some of the highest cost of living in the nation. Why is this news? Why go to the most "expensive" fast-food restaurant looking for McDonald's style pricing?

Jeremy, "our" taxes won't go up unless "we" make over 200,000 a year. And 60% of Lane County makes 24K or less.

What a whiner. Perhaps you could go home and make yourself a hamburger for $1
