Has anyone else noticed food prices rising-already?
I live on the West Coast and I have noticed a dramatic increase in the price of eggs, just in the past week. I was paying about $3.00 for two dozen regular white eggs and the price jumped to $5.00 per two dozen. At one of my favorite groceries they had a printout on the egg case that explained the increase, citing the drought and the rising cost of feed, as well as a large avian flu problem in western Mexico. I came home and tried to search the internet for more info, and couldn't find info on the current situation.

My question to you all, has anyone else noticed their food costs rising...??

Chicken, porc is bottoming out. Massive deals this week at the grocer. I picked some up.

Farmers can't afford to feed all their beasts.

It'll get cheaper and cheaper next 2 months then it'll be unbuyable.

Guess I must be getting stronger as I get older! The other week I carried $100 of groceries in only two large plastic shopping bags.

Only got two pieces of meat (no eggs since we have chickens that free range on our property), a bottle of wine, one magazine (almost $5 for it!) and the rest veggies that we aren't growing yet, pasta, cheese, coffee.

Got to keep growing those veggies in the greenhouse this winter, or we'll be making soup 3 nights a week out of necessity, not because it's one of our favorite winter foods.bump

Japan has been in recession for over 20 years now, which means most things cost less then they did 20 years ago.

The kiosk I buy soft-drinks from every day has had the price of a lemon drink at 147 yen for about 20 years. I noticed last week it was 150 yen. Make of that what you will.

In Australia the cheap crap is getting cheaper and the quality keeps going down. Real food and good quality food is getting more expensive though. So the gap between rich and poor shall widen more and in other ways as health suffers (or benefits!) so much from diet.

Get used to it.
They staged a fake "drought" so that it would cover up the effect on food of printing tons of worthless money.
GAS is also going sky high, only reason manufactured goods
are keeping station is cheap crap from CHINA.
But eventually the effects of inflation will be hard to hide(ten dollars for a loaf of bread)

Here are some grocery store prices:

$12 - $15 for a t-bone steak ~10 oz
$6 - $7 for 1 lb bacon
$12 - large jar of peanut butter
$57 - 12 pack of Coors Light, 12 pack of Bud and 4 Mike's Hard Lemonade (Bought that combo last weekend)
$1.26 - $1.32 per litre for gasoline
$4 - 1/2 pint blueberries
$4 - for a loaf of bread
$10 - $12 for a pack of smokes

It goes on and on but you get the idea. We are coming into the season of plenty where fresh local produce starts to enter the market. We stock up and can our own goods this time of year because it saves a fortune. Also we buy direct from the farmer. Wonder how long before Agenda 21 catches up to us on that front?

Here is a piss off for ya:

My sister had the property tax on her house jacked by 187%. Why? Because she lives on a lake so the government, which is broke, decided that shore side properties needed to go way the fuck up. She complained and they told her that she should consider herself lucky because some of her neighbors had theirs jacked to 200-250%

As governments become more and more strapped for cash they will look at all possible ways to milk the system.

Re: Has anyone else noticed food prices rising-already?
Totally OP.

A box of Quaker Oatmeal with 8 packets of flavoured oats was almost $5. I don't buy that kind of shit because I know how to make my own from bulk oats & fruit I dry myself.

A decent loaf of bread is $4.

No increase in egg prices yet - which is odd. I get my eggs straight from a local farm.

I buy my milk straight from the farm as well, $3/L.

Blueberries were $ 9.99 / lb. And those were the shitty ones from across the border. I said fuck that, drove south of town and bought 2 lb of certified organic, straight from the farm, for $6.

I shop at a military commissary. Sometimes I will buy a large can of cashew nuts as a "fun" Christmas gift for a relative. In December, 2010, it was $8.00. Christmas of 2011, the same size can was $11.00. Two days ago I checked, and a can was $16.95.

It's ridiculous... I spent $14 buying ingredients for a large salad the other week (baby spinach, cherry tomatoes, sliced chicken breast).

The serving sizes of many items are decreasing also. Smaller portions, but same price as before.

Even things like candy bars and soft drinks/beverages are flirting with the $2 mark....

All signs point to inevitable collapse....

Food costs are going up and will continue to increase indefinitely. This is because the price of petroleum is going up - for both actual market reasons and completely artificial ones.

Pretty much everything we eat is dependent on petroleum. The fertilizers used to grow the feed are based on petroleum. The vehicles used to transport the eggs use petroleum. Hell, even the hormones and antibiotics used on the chickens are synthesized from organic compounds extracted from petroleum. Etc.

Until we convert to a viable alternative energy economy, this trend will continue. And we will continue to become poorer as we purchase fewer and fewer goods.
