A five pound bag of sugar use to contain five pounds of product, now only four pounds. Cost the same as before 1 pound was subtracted. A pound of coffee is now 10.5 oz price is still the same as a pound. A pound of bacon is 12 oz. still priced as 16 oz. The prices are stable except for gasoline which is traded as a commodity and the spot market price jumps all over the place. Yesterday I was on my way to an appointment and wanted to fill up my truck. Decided to wait and do it after the appointment. Costly mistake. The gas was selling for $2.19 as I went by on my way to the appointment. Coming back it was now $2.69. An increase of .50 cents per gallon in a hour. I can't wait to see when they cut a dozen eggs down to eight or ten. This corporate collusion is cost us even more than you realize. When your pay raise is calculated based on the cost of living, or inflation and the cost of motor fuel is not used in the equation. Who gets the slippery end of the stick? We all do.
