[quote:Anonymous Coward 23508092:MV8yMDE3NTIzXzMzOTA5NTEwX0NDQzdCOTU=] Same thing In Australia. I actually find it hard to believe that many people seem to not have noticed here. What was $4.50 5 yrs ago is now $7.99 etc. And every month ( if not week quite honestly ) each item still jumps up. From 6 years ago til now the food price differences are enormous, and growing more visably now as it is honestly monthly or less they increase yet again. It is actually on all things, so yes we have been slowly creeping into mass inflation here as well. Gas, electricity, water, property rates ( mine have increased 100% in 8 yrs ) . [/quote]
1st thing I noticed, my wife and I have hardly changed anything about our buying and eating habits.
The 2nd thing I noticed was the crazy incrases we have had in prices.
1 can Campbells Vegetable soup was listed as $0.89
We now pay $2.19 for the same can.
Fresh Haddock Fillets were $3.99lb. Now $7.99lb.
4 litres of Skim Milk was $4.59...now $7.59.
1 loaf of whole wheat bread was $.99...now $2.99.
Fresh Green Pepper was $1.99lb...now $3.99lb.
Canned tomato juice was $0.99 a can...now $2.29 a can.
Obviously there was waaaaay more on the recipt, but I just can't believe the inflation. I'm sure many people have had to stop buying items the are used to buying, and change their life styles a great deal. I have not gotten to that point yet, but I'm feeling the pinch. It sucks.
Changes are needed.
