With the higher gas prices now expected to reach $6 a gallon by the end of the year also expect much higher food prices.
Expect to use 1/2 of your income to pay for food!
A can of coffe will be $60
gallon of Orange Juice $45
a box of pasta $10
a can of corn $8
hamburger $30 lb
hot dogs $20 package
everybody should stock up on at least 1 year suppy of food, like a can of coffee and can of corn will keep fresh for a year or more, you can freeze meat for 1 year, I also suggest to stock on the basics such as sugar, flour, rice, (buy in bulk in 50 lb bags rice will keep almost forever)
Currenty I am buying the #10 cans of pork and beans for long term storage.
Please listen to me! prepare for the bleak future!
50% of your income on food,,, can you afford that now?
