Bacon Prices Expected To Surge This Summer – The Consumerist

July 12, 2011

our bacon budget may go bust this summer if analysts’ predictions come true. One indicator is pork belly prices, which have surged to $130 per 100 pounds and could top $150, which it reached last August. A factor contributing to bacon inflation is rising corn prices, which have caused hog farmers to pare their herds, making bacon cost $4.77 a pound in May.

    “higher energy prices”

    ? How, exactly, do Obama’s policies affect energy prices any different than Bush’s? Answer: not much. So false, despite your snark about bacon.

    Um. After releasing assets from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, and the lame effect it had on energy prices, his attempts to affect energy prices are limp and flaccid, much like every other bit of economic snake oil that he sells.

    But it must bite hard that his soaring rhetoric and platitudes are started to fall on deaf ears as people realize that Hopeychangeitude really is smoke and mirrors of a charlatan who can’t produce what is promised…..

    And your continued declarations of “FALSE!” “HERESY!”…

    Desperation is a stinky cologne….
