Gas has gone up 40 cents in the last couple of weeks

Gas prices have pretty much gotten out of control. I thought things were bad when we crept up to $3.00 a gallon and now we’ve crushed that threshold and are rushing headlong into $4.00 a gallon. And I’m not so sure that’s the cap. With all the international trouble and a slew of other factors I think $4 will just be the beginning of our troubles. And of course that means food prices are going to go through the roof. The grocery bill has doubled in the past couple of years and it looks like it may do it again this summer.

Summer is a horrible time for the food industry anyway so this will just make it even worse. And it won’t just be restaurants it will be all of us. I don’t think there’s going to be a way to escape getting gouged this summer both at the pump and in the grocery store.

Just when you think things might be starting to level off, gas prices go all to hell and set things back again.

    We recently moved to a place that has cheaper gas prices, plus the commute is down from an hour to just over 15 minutes (HUGE gas savings)…What hasn’t gotten less expensive is grocery prices! My sis who owns a restaurant is getting eaten alive in food costs. I cannot imagine what food costs are doing to the one or two ;-D meal assembly places left…If last summer was “scary” this summer is going to be a nightmare. The economy is going to hit a second larger dip and the “great recession” which was a depression continues unabated…When gas hits $5 AND it will,inflation will be unstoppable. It won’t be pretty, and I suggest ppl start to set up food stores and keep extra food on hand. When gas hits $5 diesel is going to be at least 30% higher…that means even HIGHER food prices as transportion and delivery costs go up the consumer is going to be hit twice…It ain’t gonna be pretty no matter how ya cut it.
