Hello, Inflation

I was listening to WDRV "The Drive," the Chicago Classic Rock station, when I dropped my son at summer school today. They were doing a retrospective on the year 1967; they played The Moody Blues "Tuesday afternoon" and The Monkees "She." And then they shared this tidbit:

On this day in 1967 McDonalds test-marketed their new burger, the "Big Mac," which offered two beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, onions and pickles on a sesame seed bun--for forty-five cents.

Whatever happened with that sandwich?

Haha. I know it's smaller than it used to be and doesn't taste as good as I remember.
