Last Updated on January 20, 2018

Unless you have managed to stay out of grocery stores for the past few weeks, you have already figured out that food prices are on the rise.

The Post and Courier in Charleston ran a front page article that included a graphic with how much certain food prices have risen:

  • Eggs: +29.3%
  • Tomatoes: +18.2%
  • Bananas: +14.9%
  • Milk: +13.3%
  • Cheese: +12.5%
  • Cereal: +8.1%
  • Apples: +7.5%
  • Poultry: +5.4%
  • Coffee: +4.8%
  • Sugar: +4.3%
  • Potatoes: +3.4%
  • Beef: +3.1%

This information will help you with this week’s question.

  • First to play last week: Otowi of Otowi. Congratulations!

Of the items listed above, rank the ones you are most likely to buy, with 1 being the most likely.

Either answer the question in a comment or answer it in your journal and include the link in a comment. (To be considered “first to play,” a link must be to the specific entry in which you answered the question.) You may include this link in the URL space when leaving your comment, or in the comment itself. As long as it’s there in one spot or the other.

    I do not buy the other items on that list. I did buy some peanut butter the other day and noticed that the price had gone up almost 10%, at least as I remember the previous price the last time I bothered to check.
