Inflation is Here

If you’ve been shopping lately, I probably don’t have to tell you about what’s happening now. But when I saw the figures, I was surprised:

Percentage increase year over year:

Fresh vegetables 56.1
Fresh fruit 28.8
Fresh eggs 33.6
Pork 19.1
Beef 10.7
Dairy 9.7

I guess that’s why they don’t include food in the Consumer Price Index.

Take the time (1 hour) to watch this very well produced and informative documentary.
