Food Prices Climbing
Scary article from the San Bernadino Sun on rising food prices. I've certainly noticed it myself. One example is oatmeal. The 42oz containers I regularly buy used to cost around $1.80. Now they're something like $2.40 to $2.60, if memory serves me.
There's one guy in that article that predicts additional increases in prices up to 25%. Yikes!
California will likely be worse than the nation as a whole in a few years. When Prop 2- that cage free eggs initiative- takes full effect, egg prices should go up considerably. Since eggs are a fundamental part of many foods, other food prices will likely rise.
And don't look to imported eggs to save the day. Jared Huffman- the same sleazebag we have running for congress- sponsored a bill that was signed into law that shuts off the import of eggs into the state unless they're also grown cage free- something I don't think North Korea even does.
Things don't look good.
