We live in curious times, and we have the kind of abundance that nobody else from previous generations ever had. We also know that there are things about our current situation that are not that good. Sure enough, we have nearly everything we could ever want, but some of these things are way too pricey to be enjoyed by everyone. This is why a thread on Reddit emerged, and people shared the things they consider overpriced. You can read the whole discussion on Reddit.
1. The fruit
Talking about groceries, we need to mention this. The post reveals the truth, as fruits are too expensive these days.

This is true, and we have always wondered why the prices of these sessions are most often whopping.

It seems that this person nailed something that we rarely think or speak about, but we believe this is true.
5. The system
Well, this is the one expense that needs to be paid for by your relatives, but it is true that it is very expensive.

We never realized that suitcases were so expensive, and we think checking the prices would confirm this.

Here is a post that shares something we all pay for, meaning that we understand this burden quite well.
10. The tickets
This thing is something we all love, but we all know we need to pay a high price in most cases. It’s worth it, though.
11. The glasses
Modern-day tech resulted in more people wearing glasses and having a pair of those costs an arm and a leg.

The mountain of student debt continues to pile up, and this is due to the truth this post reveals.

Calling an ambulance is so expensive that people often risk it by using their own vehicles to get to the hospital.

The post you see here is something that we can all confirm. The prices of furniture these days are simply whopping.

We expected these tests to be reduced in price by now, but it seems their price levels are cemented for some reason.
17. The property
Those willing to buy real estate are currently being forced to pay ridiculous amounts of money to buy a piece of property.

Studying or medical attention are things that cost a lot these days, and we guess this should not be a fact.

This is something that should either be affordable or at least it should be covered by medical insurance.

We cannot argue with this post, as it speaks the truth. These consumables are rising in prices constantly.

Some parts of the world benefit from cheap internet service, but the U.S. still has relatively high prices.

Trains are surprisingly expensive not only in the UK but in most of the countries around the world, too.

This is one essential product that millions of families need daily, and we are surprised it is so expensive.

If there is one thing that we will never ever accept, this is the price of popcorn at any movie theater. This is a steal.

There seems to be a whole lot of things that should not be so expensive, and drinks at bars are on that list.
36. The fuel
Fuel is very expensive in most parts of the world, and we believe that this should not be like that. It is not fair.

Similar to bathroom consumables, sanitary products for all kinds of purposes are very expensive, and we wish it wasn’t so.
