20 Euros for a small package of pignoli? What the!!! Heck, a small jar of pignoli here go for US$3 - 4. Native pinenuts, from the southwest are probably cheaper. I'm not sure about that, but my g'ma gave me a pound or so, free of charge.

The price of gas is going up because it's March. March Madness, and Spring Break. Lots and LOTS of drivers out there comsuming gas.

I haven't looked at the price of celery. I did a bunch last week, but didn't check the price.

Eggs went up drastically a couple of months ago, as did the price of chicken. Were the chickens all dying off? I have noticed that the price of eggs has started to come down a bit.

Something else to think about folks. Have you heard on the news about all the bees dissappearing? I wouldn't be surprised is fruits cost a lot this year, as it takes bees to fertilize the flowers.

Thanks everyone for the response...I was just floored at how the price jumped so drastically. Believe me I plan on using up every last bit of it.

They wanted $4.49 Cdn a bunch for it yesterday. It was the scawniest, limpest, saddest excuse for celery I've ever seen. I was going to throw what I had in the crisper out, but it looked better than what was in the store.
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

I looked at Celery while I was at the grocery store today. Super-Wally-World, US$1.49/bunch. It looked like it always does.
