I heard, on the news, how grocery prices are going up by 1/3 b/c of the oil refinery fire (is there one now?) or perhaps it's the oil refinery takeover in Iraq's region?
But there are droughts & gas prices are going up. So groceries are costing more. They also stated how the stores are trying to "trick" us!
They are putting economical healthy foods we buy, way up high or way down low, so we can't find them as easily & they're putting the goodies, fattier things, which cost more, at eye level. People are going through the store, accidentally buying more expensive things they don't "need", so they pay more for groceries each week. They said to be certain to look HIGH AND LOW in the store, buy the sales, & special offers, especially if you have grocery store customer cards, buy in bulk, free, and I thought this information was wise to get "out there". I learned something from it.
