Beef prices going up

I suppose we shouldn't be surprised by this.

Seems last summer's drought has caught up with us -- earlier this month, beef prices hit a new high. 

Pork prices here have been very low, likely because farmers were selling off animals due to the drought. I suspect we'll see price hikes there next.

Here's a story from earlier in the month:

I have a feeling that things will get worse yet.

Our fuel costs have gone way up and that impacts our food here a great deal. Prices are creeping up on absolutely everything.

God bless.

Jackie, our gas prices have just taken a big jump, too. I expect we'll see the impact of that very soon.
