    Default Price of Chcolate Gogin up 15%

    Bad news, ladies. Wholesale prices are going up 10%, so that means
    about 14-15% retail. Due largely to sugar price increases.

    I know where I'll be the morning after Easter...

    In similar news, the World is going to Hell. But that's not until May
    21st.

    Oh God No! My drug addition cost is going up. Chocolate should be
    regulated by the DEA. Chocolate is right up their with cocaine and heroin.

    Ten percent increase sounds like nothing, Corn is about to double in price.
    Therefore junk food is really going up. Yea... I need to loose weight
    anyways.

    Chocolate Gogin? You mean the artist's work is going to be even more
    valuable? Oh sorry, the french impressionist's name is spelled Gauguin.
    Silly me

    Why do you assume all women love chocolate?

    Where did I say anything about "all women"?

    I even included myself in the "chocolate lovers" category. No reason
    to get all uptight.

    "Bad news, ladies" I assume that means women I'm not uptight, I just
    think categorizing women as chocolate lovers is a bit of a stereotype. The
    rise in the price of chocolate doesn't upset me nearly as much as the cost
    of gasoline.

    Gasolene is bad enough but it's the price of diesel that I find bad
    news... and so should everyone when they see how it affects their food
    bill.

    How does it compare down there now? Back n 1985 I had a pickup with a
    diesel engine and fuel was about 15 cents a litre (60 cents a gallon)
    cheaper than gas. It was economical because mileage is generally so much
    better than gas. Then a few years ago it was about 10cents more than
    gas. For the last year or so it has been bouncing around near the same
    price as gasoline sometime a little more, sometimes a little less.

    As for chocolate.... I rarely eat it anymore. I don't see it affecting
    me much. However, I am still waiting for the price of vanilla beans to
    drop.... a lot.

    *shrug* okay by me. I don't particularly care for chocolate all that
    much.

    Indeed, it's running around $125 to fill my truck these days, and diesel
    is cheaper here in TX than a lot of places. A full tank from near empty
    would be almost $150.

    I have two fairly comparable trucks, both "1 ton", crew cab, long bed,
    4x4, dually, one a 7.4 gas Chevy and one a 6.4 diesel Ford. The gas gets
    about 11 MPG and the Ford about 14 MPG. Fuel prices have diesel about
    $0.30/gal more than gas lately. Each time I calculate the cost per mile,
    the diesel comes out $0.03-$0.05 cheaper to operate than the gas.

    The price for a fill-up is pretty meaningless without knowing either
    the number of gallons or better the price per gallon.

    Here regular gas is $3.75/gal... diesel is $4.10/gal.
    Nine years ago diesel cost me $1.75/gal.
    I use 15 gallons of diesel to mow my lawn.
    Now instead of $25 it's gonna cost me $60 each week to mow my lawn.
    Everything has increased in price likewise, mostly due to the increase
    in the cost of energy.

    I use four gallons or regular each week just for my lawn. I am now thinking
    about goats. I can live without gas, but I would have severe withdrawal
    symptoms if I did not have some chocolate every day... It is that bad!

    My city actually moves a flock of goats around to various undeveloped lots
    to keep the vegetation in check. The flock was in a field across the street

    For me, both types are a big deal. Diesel is over $4 a gallon here, so
    food prices and other product prices are going up.

    But my business involves travel for me AND my customers. So, when the
    gas goes up, my costs go up and my customers go down. And those people
    who do attend the shows have spent more to get there, so they tend to
    spend less at the show. The last time the gas was really high, my
    business tanked. It hasn't gotten that bad yet, but it is not as good
    right now as normal. And it isn't just me. The other vendors are all
    having the same problem.

    Last week, I had a package arrive via UPS. Normally, it is trucked
    from Georgia to Oregon, and then up to Seattle. This time, it went by
    train. I wouldn't have known, except it derailed and arrived a day
    late.

    This morning, where I live, gas was $3.39 per gallon and diesel was
    $3.77. I sold my car that used diesel, but the high cost of fuel makes
    almost everything go up in price.

    It used to be diesel was always cheaper than regular gasoline.
    Apparently, the greedy bastards discovered when gas prices increase,
    auto drivers jes stay the Hell home, while the trucking industry still
    hasta roll, regardless of price. Hence, when prices go up and
    families cancel that trip to Disneyland, diesel prices skyrocket past
    regular gasoline prices and we all pay. Oh yeah, diesel is waaay cheaper to
    refine than gasoline, too, so there's that EXTRA profit margin the
    dirtbags reap.

    BTW, I suspect those revolts in the Middle East are not gonna stay
    confined to the ME for much longer.

    In CA tax on diesel is also much higher than on regular gas. I find that
    strange as well.
