Ouch, field crops are through the roof. Maybe we should all start being carnivores. Look at the meat prices; they haven't changed as much as most
of the other ones. Too bad that they will probably go up eventually, since guess what we use to feed our animals.
Or maybe we can all eat tangerines. They dropped in price by two thirds.
The worst part about the food price increases is that with it being the grains and such that are rising the highest, and those being the staple food
of many poorer areas, that crops rising in price is probably worse than just about any other type of food rising. Like, for instance, if meat was
costing an arm and a leg, but nothing else was going up, then poorer regions probably wouldn't notice that much, and rich nations would just be
eating less steak. But with it being key grain crops that are costing more, EVERYONE is affected, because it is such a basic necessity.
