Drought also affects hot dogs?
Just recently (Aug. 14) I purchased hot dogs at a local store and paid their regular price of $1.78 for a one pound package. On Aug. 23 I went to the same store and paid $2.78 for the same brand hot dogs with the SAME Oct. 7 expiration date.
That is not a mistake — a $1 price increase in 9 days. It is kind of like the price of a gallon of gas jumps around.
It must be the drought because our president, House and Senate indicate there is little to no inflation. Can you say Ben Bernanke (the Fed chairman)?
Perhaps we can blame former President George Bush too, but no, I don't want to be a copycat.
Can you say “profits” or “greed.” Nah, must be the drought.
