EJ,

Perhaps the analyst you are talking about was refering to the high energy costs associated with California businesses right now. I found this article today:

Seems like a small issue to me. As they can always regroup the higher costs by raisning prices accordingly. Like you said earlier, I don't think a few cents is going to make a difference in people's food buying habits.
