I wasn't out today, but gas yesterday was $2.98 - 2.99 almost everywhere.

And I haven't been grocery shopping this week either. I paid $3.00 for the last 1/2 gal. of organic milk I bought. My husband heard on a Tampa radio station that milk is supposed to go to $4.50/gallon because of the gas prices.

Nana, that is so high. I can't believe how much grocery prices have gone up. And we all need milk!

I feel particularly bad for all the families with little children who really need the milk. And cereal is $3.00 - $4.00 +/box, so breakfast could get to be an expensive meal if you have 3-4 kids.

I do see more young families price-shopping for their basic grocery items though.

I know cereal got out of control--pricewise--months or even more than one or two years ago. I can't imagine what is in it to make it worth that much. I bought some cereal in April, and didn't look at the price until after check-out: $8.99. I was floored but ate it!

And, of course, the children really need the milk, and cereal.

No answers!

90% of you lower 48 folks could raise your own milk cow! And eat "it" too!
Cereal has gone up due to packaging I think. All the pretty colors. And what ever happened to the cool prizes and records you could cut off the back of the box? Used to be some sweet prizes back in the day.

Keep in mind that I live in a very rural town, but I almost fell over with shock yesterday at the store when I picked up a pint of strawberries (not even organic!) and they were $5.99!

Yeah! What happened to those? And the ones that were in the Cracker Jack box?

Default Walmart

I went into our local Super Walmart, last week, a gallon of milk was $3.92 and this week........NEARLY FELL OVER it was ya all ready? $4.22. Nearly 50 percent of what I picked up went up. Cheese has gone up its now
$3.98 compared to $3.48 last week, Walmart has these little single serve pies were $.50 forever, then this week $.58 each, soda is at $1.33, I won't buy it until I see it on sale for $.99 which at Walgreens nearly every week they have a sale for Pepsi or Coke.

Saw gas for $2.92 at RacTrak......Hess is also $2.92.

I put gas last week at $3.12 9/10ths. (for 87 unleaded). I've seen it around $3.07 - $3.09 now but I still have 1/2 a tank and I don't stop for gas until it's almost on "E".

Don't need milk yet either or cheese. I'm low on pet food though. :-))

Well, perhaps we all have to pool our resources, buy a farm, move in together and get a few cows, and we'd have cheese, milk and yoghurt.

I just priced organic and non-organic at the co-op: organic 6.99/gal; non-organic 3.99/gal.

Petrol still at 2.99.

And, Rance, when was the last time you were in the lower 48? Farms are dwindling down this way! I haven't milked a cow since my grandparents' neighbours (dairy farmers) let me pull at a teat and I was so young and so short, I didn't need the stool. Grandpa had a regular old farm and perhaps a duck, some chickens and a goose--if I remember correctly.
