Well, I have three receipts in my wallet. The biggest shock for me this week was at the gas pump.
February 18, 2012 I paid for $3.349 per gallon of unleaded.
Monday of this week March 19, I paid $3.739 per gallon of gas and then yesterday, March 22, the shock was paying $3.979 per gallon!!!

My uncle chastizes me at balking at those prices, because they are (in Scotland,) paying over $9.00 a litre for gas! To which I'd like to reply that shame on you...you are surounded by oil rigs in the North Sea pumping it out...most of ours is coming from half a world away. I'm sure the point would be missed.

I know the cost of peanut butter has gone sky high too...not a cheap sandwich anymore!

1. Gas in our area is running about 4.15 a gallon
2. lg. canned tomatoes 28oz 1.68 Wal-Mart price
3. 1/2 2% milk 1.99 on grand opening sale
4. can fruit cocktail 1.48 Wal-Mart price
5. Mrs. Butterworth's pancake syrup 3.29
6. Large apple juice 2.74 on sale Target
7. roma tomatoes .66 A lb.
8. Kraft American cheese slices 2% small pack 4.18

I have to save all receipts because we itemize our sale tax. Wa state does not have state income so we are allowed to claim our 9% sales taxes paid on our returns. I now try to shop at Wal-Mart or at least Target for as much as possible because I find I save a major amount on a lot of items there. Some things have gone up over 50% in price over a year ago :-(
