Meat prices on the rise, with no relief expected by summer

The cost of meat is hitting record highs, with little or no relief expected by the summer grilling season.

Experts say there are a variety of factors for the unusually high prices, from bad weather and animal diseases to high consumer demand and smaller cattle herds.

Local meat sellers and restaurant owners say they're dealing with higher costs in a variety of ways, trying to avoid passing them on to consumers while hoping that they'll come back down.

While some are expecting prices to go up even more as the main grilling season approaches, similar predictions in the past have failed to come true, said Rob Bozek, of Michael's Meats in Cumberland. According to Bozek, pork and beef are taking the biggest hits right now.

"It's not a good time for the meat industry," he said.

Bozek said he, like others, is trying to hold off on passing the added costs to consumers, but it's becoming increasingly difficult given the spike in price for some meats. Pork products, for instance, are seeing an increase near 30 percent.

Obama doesn't know what he's doing. Higher meat prices are putting the squeeze on the middle class. You need the middle class votes in order to win. Remember the Housing crises ?? That cost McCain a shot at the white house and the GOP lost both houses in 2008.

While the official inflation number intentionally omits food and fuel, actual people are confronted by it every day.
Gas stayed up. Corn is too expensive because it is burnt in cars and not in a good harvest year. Expensive fuel makes everything you buy more expensive and the administration can only make things worse. Steve us right to suggest this is more bad news for the donkeys.

Remember during Jimmy Carters term what happen when food prices and gas prices went higher? Reagan became president.

Should be noted that medical costs are also NOT included in the official inflation number.

What are the fastest rising costs in the economy? Energy, medical, and food ....
