I have noticed a distinct increase in recent months. My typical grocery shopping (for just me) is every week to 10 days and was averaging about $30 per trip. Now, it is running about $50 per trip.

I used to see more subtle price increases — a few cents on items per trip. Now, I typically see increases of 50-cents or more.

Eggs were 50-cents/doz for a year. Recently, the prices shot up to $1.75.

Milk, $2.00/gal. Now, $2.75.

Large bottle of store brand antacid was $3.27 for years. Now, it is $3.98.

Pork rinds jumped from $1.28 to $1.78 for the same size bag.

But, thank goodness our FED tells us inflation is running at minus 5% or some such non-sense. [/s]

“I have noticed a distinct increase in recent months.”

The other little trick that food processors use is to decrease the amount in any given product and keep the price the same.

They really do think that we ‘commoners’ are stupid.

You’re so lucky. Milk is $5.59 a gallon here and eggs are about $2.79/doz.
