    So you think you’ve been paying more for groceries because your food bill is too high?
    You’re right. Barack Obama is consuming fine dining while you’re putting another helping of macaroni on your plate. prices skyrocketed for staples that you consume, according to the government:
    •Beef: +10.2%
    •Pork: +8.5%
    •Fish: +7.1%
    •Eggs: +9.2%
    •Dairy: +6.8%
    •Oils and Fats: +9.3%

    Thanks to those kinds of prices, more and more people are opting to stay home for dinner – restaurants are simply too expensive. The gap between how much Americans eat out and how much they eat at home is the biggest since the mid-1970’s oil crisis.

    Can you find the info for Gasoline and electricity also? I know both are up by higher numbers than the food numbers but don't have a link.

    Gas plummeted along with the stock market when the market crashed and isn't even back to pre-crash levels today.

    To try and attack Obama because of the "increase" in gas prices since he took office is the height of intellectual dishonesty.

    You should be better than that.

    I'm not attacking Obama by stating that gas has gone way up again since he took office, I see it every week at the pump.

    The reasons for this are multiple, part is the economy is better, part is that he keeps pushing for more printing of money through the quantitative easing (QE 1,2,3) devaluing our dollar, part is that regardless of rhetoric he has not done anything to increase production of non-renewable domestic energies (most blatant was blocking the keystone pipeline).

    You do know I don't hate Obama on a personal level right? He is just wrong when it comes to how to handle our economy and domestic energy plan.

    Wow! Good thing Food and Energy aren't used in the calculation of the Inflation Rate!

    Yet prices are lower than they were before the crash.

    Reconcile that.

    much of the price of food is the weather related around the world, and the squeezing of the consumers by middlemen in the collection and redistribution of these foodstuffs, now on another note, increases of human population in the world and no increases in food yields by farming will only increase the demand and price of food.

    But please be myopic and just blame Oblama.

    It's ridiculous to pin this to a president. This writing has been on the wall since Bernanke started creating trillions of dollars of new money back in 2008.
