One reason I think they are having some declines is that their prices have creeped up over the last several years. Their in store menus are tricky as well frequently 'hiding' the dollar menu or up size/big size pricing. Throw in the nanny stater health fanatics McD is candidate for sales declines.

I was going when they were issuing/mailing coupon books which have stopped around here anyway. I'll stop in but not as much.

Even if sales do drop there's no doubt it'll pick up again, McDonalds is quite a huge franchise.. people will just continue eating this fast food no matter what.
