wholesale prices for all brands it carries, including Skippy, are 30% to 35% higher than a year ago.

So what does this mean to the average person?

I usually buy Aldi/generic brand unless I am getting fresh ground in store.
Two very different things price wise. How much is the cost of peanuts increasing?
Anyway my standard generic peanut butter is $1.20 right now.
Even if the price DOUBLES - and I go through 1 jar a week, that ups my monthly food busget by <$5.
yes, over the course of a year that is over $50 -
If I bought a name brand maybe that is close to $100, but certainly not something that would break the bank.
I am quite sure that a 5 cent rise in the cost of gasoline costs me more over the course of a year (not even counting indirect costs)

peace & much ado
