I about had a coronary in the store today when I saw that the 5 pounds of hamburger that at the begining of the year was about $8.99 a pound and had crept up to $10.45 by the end of January, was now $12.45. Thats a 2 dollar hike in less than 2 weeks! What really concerned me was the knowledge that this isn't some temporary quirk. These prices will look good compared to whats down the road.
And another for ground beef here:
Hopefully you will be able to use these to your advantage as well.
