Prices go up every year so this shouldn't be a big shock.

Here's an obvious fact. Gas prices go up. The price of everything goes up.

But no...let's not look behind that particular curtain. Concentrate on this. Food prices are going up. This calls for a carbon tax. Cause weather. Right, empty heads of Guelph who would like us to believe you're the intelligentsia?

Not to worry boys and girls. The moron patrol at Guelph is going to fix the weather. Image

As long as everybody thinks rising prices is normal, then all is good in the empire.

Old Ron James joke was he eats a teaspoon of cat food a day, to get himself used to when he retired....

China is buying up the world's meat. We buy every fucking fruit & vegetable from California where fires and droughts have been problems for a decade. We've let food distributors and retails buy each other up and kill competition.

Any wonder I was pissed about parties trying to buy my vote with a paltry $10 pension increase in a 'few years'?

Curious does a litter of milk cost more than a gallon of gas? It does where I'm at.


Just think about it. The truck that delvers crates of Milk uses less gallons to transport the milk yet each gallon of milk is more than a gallon of gas. Can you say huge profit margin for someone.

Say it takes 20 gallons of gas to transport 200 gallons of milk. Those trucks hold more than 200.

Are you buying the entire litter? or are you just taking the pick of the litter?

I don't know about gallons but in Canada the price in litres is pretty similar.

But if the price of milk goes up the price of gas doesn't. If the price of gas goes up the price of milk does.

And that's regardless of the weather, braintrust of the University of Guelph.

Milk is typically more expensive than in the US because of our domestic policy (supply management), which limits how much can be produced nationwide.

It also probably depends on where you live in the country - in Toronto and Vancouver, gas can get pretty pricey ($1.50/litre when I was in Vancouver last summer), while in Alberta where we produce and refine it (and have less taxes on it), it's usually around $1/litre.

The four litre jug of milk I bought last week was $4.49, so a tad more expensive than gas, but in other parts of Canada, the opposite may be true.
