The mainstream media is trying really hard to convince all of us that inflation will soon no longer be a problem, but meanwhile food prices continue to soar to absolutely absurd levels.  In fact, we just learned that vegetable prices increased by a whopping 38 percent in November.  When I originally saw that number, I thought that it must represent the change from 12 months ago.  But that is not the case.  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, vegetable prices jumped 38.1 percent from October to November, and they are up a total of 80.6 percent over the past 12 months…

The price of vegetables from producers shot up 38% on a monthly basis in November — and jumped over 80% compared to November 2021 — according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics latest Producer Price Index.

Even after reading that, a lot of you are still going to have a very difficult time believing that these figures are actually real.

So I would encourage you to go to the official BLS website and see the numbers for yourself.

This isn’t an Internet rumor.

This is real.

As you can see from this chart, egg prices are also going completely nuts.

The price of eggs shot up 26 percent last month.

And over the past 12 months the price of eggs is up an astounding 244 percent.

The bird flu is the primary reason why eggs have become so expensive.  More than 50 million chickens and turkeys in the United States are already dead, and it is likely that millions more will die in the months ahead.
