soo much cheaper than Alberta...I miss living in the US

Panic buying, like topping of a gas tank, will only lead to even higher prices or supply shortages.

I'll buy my Select Section organic crunchy at Fry's if it goes up to 10.00 jar. On graham crackers or ritz, it's just too good to pass up. It used to be 3.29. Now, I think it's 3.89

Jif peanut butter owned by Smucker is also part of the price increase. Does this mean we will also see huge price increases for Reese's peanut butter cups?

WE were at Sam's yesterday and saw one woman buy 6 double packaged (12 jars) of it and 2 double packed natural peanut butter. I later went to $ General and they were sold out of all but the cheap crap.
