And we thought prices at the gas pumps were spiraling out of control!
Stopped in at Firehouse Pizza, class of the area pizza purveyors this evening for a slice of Sicilian... $2.50 + NYS Sales tax, and was ruminating about when a good slice of pizza in pre-Snack Tax New York City was 15¢ out the door. Proprietor Michael Araujo proceeded to drop the news that his 50 pound bags of high gluten Gold Medal All Trumps flour which were $12.00 just last Summer, had cost him $29.95 earlier that day!
"Then the supplier told me, 'Stock up now 'cause it's gonna be $35 a bag by next week.' And don't even get me started with the cost of cheese!"
By July we'll probably be thinking back fondly of the $1.75 slice of plain ol' cheese pizza!
Who do we need to invade about that?
