Warned people at least a year ago this was going to happen.

(and just wait if the drought continues this summer)

Gee. Gas prices couldn't be to blame could they?
Link or not, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see the connection.

I went to Kroger a few days ago and the lowest price steak was $8.99 a lb. I saw it going up over $28 a lb for some cuts. That seems at least 50% higher than I recall maybe 60 days ago.

Something wicked this way comes.

Yes, food prices are still rising. Just google "global food crisis" for more information.

And oh yeah, figure out how and where to grow a garden. You're gonna need it.

This should be expected.... this isn't conspiracy or anything.. it's merely the fact that demand is outpacing what we can produce.. and this has been predicted for YEARS .... ... until people start cutting down on their fast food, pizzas and the like, and start consuming just what they need... we're in trouble... otherwise we have to look at the world as a singular food source and divide it evenly ... that's not likely in a corporate world... so expect prices to skyrocket

It looks like ranchers aren`t going to be selling many cows this year, not when prices are that high.

And now we find people replacing beef with horses... the fact is our population's demand is outpacing supply ... fast food suddenly is becoming a bad idea ( as it always should have been )

Cargill is closing plants down because retail prices are so high for cattle. They don't want to have to ship them in from where they can get them cheaper, and they can't get them for decent prices locally, so they're at least temporarily shutting plants down until prices come down.

Everyone should plant a garden this year even if it is only a tomato plant in a pot on the balcony.
Grocery trip today 3 lbs ground beef lean 15.78
Gallon Milk 4.04
Loaf of generic bread 1.00 (on sale) usual brand Sara Lee 2.98
1lb deli meat Turkey 7.88
Miracle whip 4.98
Cereal 3.99

This was food for less-
Add that to the continuing drought in the midwest, yes prices will continue to climb.
Plant a garden, learn to can. I am looking to move so I can keep my own chickens for eggs.Buy when items are on sale and stock up.

One of the things so stupid about this is..
Understanding that drought puts a huge kink in all growth..
there are thousands of farmers that are paid to NOT use their property
for produce....
So.. a manufactured problem?

I think people simply need to realize that they don't need to eat meat everyday.
I eat meat about once a week and fish twice a week. The rest of the days are filled with pasta, vegetables, oatmeal, nuts, and other things that are filling and not as expensive.
If the government is going to bleed us dry, we just have to stop eating things that bleed as much as we'd like to.

The hard part is trying not to throw up after watching the Obama's stuff their faces with lobster.

You have supplied NO link, and I've not been able to corroborate your claim based on a google search of any such story cast lately.

If you're going to post a thread (especially one based with an alarming title) you need to back up what you say with SOURCES.

FWIW, I do think food prices are going to skyrocket. But double in a few months? C'mon. Not unless the dollar collapses outright.
