She doesn’t have to do her own shopping. I went to buy a bottle of coffee creamer. It had a price hanger that said Price Drop. It was 4.29, and the listed price was 4.99. Just last week, it was 3.99. I buy this stuff all the time. Take bacon. It is almost 6.00 a pound. Five years ago, you could get a pound of bacon for 1.99. Hamburger, 20% fat, is 3.99 a pound. It was 2.99 not that long ago. Coffee: I was going out and getting whole bean from the dispenser bins for 5.99 a pound just a couple of years ago. Now, it is hard to find at 7.99, and the sealed bags that used to be a pound are now 12 ounces. A cereal box used to be able to give me three good sittings of cereal, but now they are so thin they scarcely hold two bowls. Bread: 2.99 for a one-pound loaf of the store brand. Really, it was 1.99 only two years ago. That is 50% more.
Then there is gasoline. When Bush left office, it was 2.89 a gallon for regular, which is all I buy. That bastard Bush took his 2.89 gasoline with him, and all we have now is 3.99 gasoline. See, it really is Bush’s fault.
