Published November 27, 2008.The ever-rising cost of food

I am a single person. I pretty much go to the Mega-grocery store on Joe Howe Drive every day. Things I have noted recently- cost of canned/stewed tomatoes up to $1.19 from .089 cents/canned generic soup first up 0.69 from 0.59 and it has gone up YET again to 0.79 recently/whole-grain (14 grain bread) up another $0.30 cents as of yesterday- this bread has gone from $1.99 to $3.29 in less than a year. I guess we are lucky in that we don't have hyper-inflation (yet) and that we can still get food- others in other nations aren't so fortunate. Fuck this century sucks. I can't wait to see what shit we'll all have to face next year.....asteroids?, hemmoroids?, Martians?, plagues? Did I say this century sucks?

miss the good old days of the '90's
