Ultimately, the price of beer, doughnuts and red meat is what matters most- at minimum to a couple of of us, albeit a dying breed. To the Homer Simpsons of the world, I deliver good tidings of fantastic joy. Safeway is selling a dozen doughnuts this 7 days for $3.ninety nine. SaveMart has N.Y. steaks on sale for $2.97 lb., and the pride of Belgium- Budweiser- can be had just about anywhere for 2007 costs. Meanwhile, the wholesale cost of sugar, wheat, corn, coffee- you title it- is at multi-yr highs. Why, then, is the U.S. customer obtaining off so inexpensive?
