    Limes have gone up from $14 a case to $100 due to crop damage & political flap in Mexico.

    Does North Carolina still have rules in place to prevent extreme milk place to prevent extreme milk prices ( too high or too low - except for limited tme sales such as those at the grocery stores ) ??

  • privilegesrevoked Mar 26, 2014

    Maybe it's time to get used to 'making' milk from powder? I could certainly use it in baking at least............hhhmmm 'food' for thought.

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Mar 26, 2014

    privilegesrevoked - So true. February had a 4% increase in beef prices - the most in the last 10 years. Not good at all for consumers. :-(

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Mar 26, 2014

    bgrmom - you are absolutely right about the rising milk prices. There is a big increase in milk prices expected - up to $1 more per gallon because of various factors like drought in CA and bad weather in the midwest. You can see more here:

  • privilegesrevoked Mar 26, 2014

    BGRMOM - true indeed! And I just read an article about the cost of beef skyrocketing well ahead of normal seasonal highs - we're in for another round of price increases in beef now too. Restaurants will raise prices, grocery stores etc.

  • bgrmom Mar 26, 2014

    So I guess the days of $2.99 milk (or less) at Walgreens/Kroger are gone. I wonder what the next sale price will be at Harris Teeter. Looks like prices have gone up everywhere--again.
