Media hype?

This morning on the Today Show, there was a segment about rising grocery prices. The reported that discount/bulk stores such as Sam's and Costco are limiting each customer to 4 bags of rice and flour.

Do you think it's just media hype or do you think we are actually going to run low on food?

They made an interesting point in the news piece about people choosing between fuel and food......just makes me glad that I've figured out this couponing thing!

I doubt we will run low on food, but we will keep paying higher and higher prices for it. Fresh fruit and veggies are getting to be ridiculous where I live.

I think the media is doing what it always does, makes normal people scared. I do think that as a result of this, prices will keep climbing. Thank goodness for coupons!

Definitely media hype. They are always over exaggerating stuff...

But I agree with Stephanie, thank goodness for coupons!
