Pizza prices have been climbing for a couple years now based on the rising cost of subsidized dairy product pricefixing. Mozzarella costs have more than doubled, and with this grain price increase, I say it's time to stop paying farmers to not grow things, or pour perfectly good milk down the drain to keep prices up artificially.

Of course I haven't followed my farming family members recent activities in OR and NE, so I may be a little behind in current market manipulation here...

ETA: Don't get too offended by my statements above, they're basically tongue in cheek. I do have family working the land and I really don't mean to insult most farmers.

Funny you should bring this up. We just had a lunch with our congressman today at work. I work for a national pizza chain and not only has the price of cheese double but wheat (flour) has tripled. It due to two things. There are a couple of rouge traders manipulating the market and there is no limit to how much wheat can be exported. Since the U.S. dollar is weak right now, most of our grain is being exported.

Do not think that pizza is the only thing that will be affected. Soon the price of a loaf of bread could go to $4. Higher prices on pasta, milk, cheese, bread, and anything with wheat will be hitting your grocery stores very soon. When I talked to the head miller at General Mills to discuss possible grain mixing to reduce flour costs, he told me that there wasn't any grains available. Not that it was high priced, it's just not there.

It is a sad day for America when we will not be able to feed our own due to grain shortages. I urge everyone to do their own research and email their congressmen and senators and encourage them to put a cap on exports.

Yes, the grain shortage will put a damper on brewing but it will also put a huge damper on feeding your family.

To top it all off I heard on the radio that they're trying to DCWASA is trying to raise water price by 7%.

I'm just waiting for the price of yeast to go up.

We're missing the bigger picture. Chickens eat wheat. Chickens have wings and lay eggs. Therefore the price of hot chicken wings and pickled eggs will skyrocket! Oh, the horror!

Lol, Fingers.

Guys batten down the hatches, an economic storm has begun. I honestly believe it is the wind of change that will finally drive the population to stop wasting so many of our vital resources. Everything is affected by the price of that thar crude erl.
