Grocery prices

I was under the impression that the cost of groceries was mostly due to the rising price of fuel. However, I have not noticed any reduction in prices at Giant that could possibly map to the reduced gas prices. Funny how a bump upward in gas prices immediately rises food costs and a lowering of gas prices has no downward effect.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

Re: Grocery prices

Funny how that works.

The one that bugs me is having to prepay to buy gas when paying cash. When they started that they said it was due top the high price of gas and people driving off without paying. Now that the price has dropped you still have to prepay.
I usually like to top off my tank. but hate walking back in to get my own money and hate using a credit card for gas.

Re: Grocery prices

The food was harvested at the high fuel prices. Because the cost of fuel went down today does not mean that the buyers for the stores got what it would cost today for a head of lettuce because it was purchased a year ago.

Every day you see it on the news. Another felons life needlessly spared by inaccurate fire.

As quick as it browns/rusts, they must have received the lettuce a year ago!

Re: Grocery prices

I wonder if people who feel some prices should come down due to lower gas prices ,, would these same people take a reduction in there income ?? since they themselves pay less for fuel ?? or do they just want SOMEONE ELSE to get less money??

Hard to generate much sympathy for multibillion dollar oil companies. Yes, I would rather they take the hit than me.

Are you mad at me? I have a few shares of Exxon, as do many Americans. Perhaps your anger about the high price of fuel, An anger which I share, would be better directed at the middle eat oil cartel Know as OPEC which sets the actual price of crude oil, and at the muslim rat who vowed to ruin the fossil fuel industry in the United States.

Uhhh, how can I be mad at you when I don't even know you?????

And the last I checked some of those OPEC companies ARE some of the multi billion dollar companies that I mentioned. Again...

Where did the impression come from that I'm only talking American companies???
