Milk Prices on the Rise

Written by dad - 3 Comments

Drat! Foiled again… Dairy economists are predicting that the retail price of milk could rise as much as 9% (i.e, $0.30/gallon) by fall. I guess my idea of inventing a milk-powered car to combat the ever-increasing price of gas will have to go on the backburner for the time being. In all seriousness, we go through a ton of milk (and it’s only going to get worse), so this is certainly an unwelcome occurrence for us. The looming price increases have been attributed to rising fuel and feed costs as well as increasing worldwide demand for milk products.

  1. I went through a lot of milk growing up. It took me about 8 months of lactose intolerance to realize I had become allergic to it as an adult.

    We used to get whole milk right from the farm; it didn’t last as long, but it tasted really good and I drank enough that it never went bad anyway.
