Gold prices have topped $1800 per ounce, and local precious metals shops are seeing massive traffic as people trade in their scrap gold and silver. I spoke with David Hakes of Missoula Gold and Silver Exchange on Wednesday afternoon about how his store traffic has increased since gold has taken off in price. That interview is attached.

Hakes’ advice? Get out of debt and stay out of debt to keep from being a victim of the coming inflation.
