price of oil holding at $100/barrel is increasing the cost of truckers who carry food to grocery stores. price for some stuff has up 50%. truckers and grocery stores will have no choice but to pass the cost to consumers.. businesses need to maintain their profit margins or be out of business. a 2 L coke cost 1.25 last year now $2 that is real inflation. truckers can't hedge there fuel prices especially gas for how long? maximum fuel hedge is only 1 year .
