I know I’m beating a dead horse. But the point needs to keep being made. Chicken feed went up another two percent this week, $13.99 to $14.29 for my usual forty-pound bag. A forty-six percent increase in less than fourteen months.
And motor fuel is at an all-time high – locally $4.39 for regular gasoline and $5.39 for diesel. That’s a 225+% increase since election day 2020, roughly eighteen months ago.
