Re: NBC News: Grocery Prices going through the Roof this Year
From the same main stream article:

"Issues like higher gas prices, increasing transport costs that get passed on to consumers, especially for items like bread, are only going up as driving increases faster than oil production. So grocery prices are likely to remain on the higher end of estimates for at least the rest of the year, Olvera said. Producers may eventually increase their output in order to capture the heightened demand, but that won’t happen until toward the end of this year, Olvera said."

and

"The White House said Monday that it expects inflation to go up — and not go back down."

-----------------

So the White House and their lackeys in the media are admitting this now. They would never say this unless it is going to be much worse.
 Quoting: Doctor Congo


The price of the raw stock (aluminum, steel and plastics) I use in my machine shop are going up dramatically also. These costs get passed on to the consumers, and will be felt by the public soon.

Re: NBC News: Grocery Prices going through the Roof this Year
I highly recommend everyone to plant a nice garden this year. Right now I have two 12 foot raised beds of peas growing very nicely, 2 beds of mostly broccoli and some cauliflower, and two beds of overwintered greens with some transplanted lettuce. Also a bed of perennial Japanese bunching onions and garlic. My summer plants are sitting outside getting some sun. Most of them are in 3.5 inch plastic pots.

I have a zucchini and a summer squash growing in big pots so I can have them early this year.

I will have 12 feet of green and wax pole beans later, along with 24 feet of pole dry beans. 12 feet of fresh pole beans is enough for two people for a year.

"Supply problems"

Yes its called inflation.

Everyone is becoming rich
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 80171289


Agree with this in a way..

SO much free money has been pumped into the system..it's impossible to not have price inflation.

I see so many people doing nothing and cashing check after check. Not to mention the crypto gainz!

From the article:
"Shoppers had better start budgeting more for their grocery bills, according to the latest consumer price index, which shows prices are increasing — and they’re likely to keep going up.

The monthly consumer price index, released Tuesday morning by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, showed a 0.6 percent increase in March, the largest one-month increase in nearly a decade. Over the past year, prices have increased 2.6 percent overall."

One example is bacon is up more than a dollar a pound in some major cities. Supply problems are causing most of the increases and those problems are not going away thanks to Biden and liberal state governors. And it is going to get worse.

This is a very good year for everyone to start growing a garden.

I'm out west and prices have obviously shot up quite a bit. What used to be about a $250 grocery list is now about $325....same things, same amount. I've asked my relatives in the south and they say they haven't felt the same punch in the gut. Maybe it's regional right now???
 Quoting: Michael Gordon Peterson


And with the Restaurants and Sporting events reopening things are going to get a lot higher, I read somewhere that they expect shortages in Burgers, Hotdogs, bacon, Ketchup, coffee and various Breads, Buns and Rolls because of all the reopening's, there were many other foods on that list but this all i could remember!

There is already a ketchup shortage. They have limited supplies to smaller businesses to fulfill contractual obligations.

Re: NBC News: Grocery Prices going through the Roof this Year
USA printed more money in one month last year under that orange puppet than in last 200 years of American Republic

so what else do you think is the consequence of his Deep State actions than a hyper-inflation on the horizon

and a new W5imar Republic of 1920s

history keeps repeating itself because the same kind of people are manipulating with events and screwing the populaces

it took 5 years for the German Reichsmark to go from a 5 mark bill to a one million

same shit happening in America, dollar the World's reserve currency, we're all fucked an WW3 is imminent, thanks Tramp

They're testing to see how much Austerity you will tolerate
There's no good reason why US or Australia should have Austerity
Both nations have vast untold wealth in resources--minerals petrol gas coal farmland
They pretend Lockdowns have prevented 3rd world labourers from picking fruit etc
Any excuse to pretend there are food shortages

Becos they know the psychological impact of the public seeing empty supermarket shelves
If you accept the fake Economic Collapse--the fake food shortages--then you accept unnecessary 11 yr Austerity--rationing resources
Just like the British public did AFTER WW2

Re: NBC News: Grocery Prices going through the Roof this Year
I guess people are not like me, I think the vaccine and other crap is about hiding the crash of all crashes until it can't be hid, in other words, they are fixing their own hiding places during this time. The crash of the world has been coming for a goodly time now, it is the monetary currency add stupid and this looks like what it is, the world is coming apart. The run of Fiat currency is falling apart and reset can not fix it, it can feather the nest of the ones who set it up, it will not help the average person.

The fall of Rome was in large part the reason Christian were used as an escape goats blaming the Fiat system of that time on them. It was to hide the fall, it worked for a while, and then they were after the Emperor. This is why Rome fell, not told in the many history books, their civilization failed to keep the whole world falling into chaos.

We have been in a downward spiral for a long time, debt just kept it hidden, wars kept it hidden as the killed of the young people, you know the one who could cause them bodily harm. It didn't work with the Roman Empire. Don't tell me it is different now, because I can do a match for them to match now, it was the same type Empire of the world, not the US, it is the world Empire set up in private, banking corporations are a bunch of waste of space.

There were world leaders that set up the Federal Reserve note as world currency not the US. They got very rich on doing so. They also caused the debt, so they are to blame for the fall also, greed and filthy low morals is what did it in Roman Empire as well as now.

Jesus was right when he told it, Money, the word was different the meaning is the same, the root of all evil, it was, and it still is, it is also dumb and stupid, it can't learn from the past because it denied the facts, every fail of civilization has been the same world over. There is not one that fell for any other reason, it had to do with the same thing. Don't mention the civilization that were attacked by these World Empires, they were the victims of those Empires. The first real Republic was taken over from within, today is a good lesson, the same thing has been happening to all free people in the world, they gave you entertainment and idols to worship instead of The Lord God. As with all others, down, down the Whore goes.
