Hungry?

Don't eat, anyway.

The Preliminary All Farm Products Index of Prices Received by Farmers rose 2.0% in March from February.

That's 24%/year, folks!

It's going to get worse:

Prices paid by farmers for the means of production rose 1.7% from February and is now 11% higher than a year ago.

How'dya like that ethanol NOW, sucker?

Yes, let's put our food supply in our gas tanks for something that doesn't work. Yeah! That makes sense!!
