“A crop rally in the U.S. is threatening to make essential food commodities dramatically more expensive, and the costs could soon spill over onto grocery store shelves.”

USAGOLD note: More evidence of inflation……Please see the note accompanying the post immediately below. Gone are the days when oranges were 1¢ each and a grapefruit cost 5¢ – as shown in this photograph from 1942.  A six pound sack of potatoes was going for 23¢ and a four pounds of Delicious apples were 25¢.
