I started to do research before our Hawaii trip and at the local Safeway, Lucerene 12 count large Eggs are $8.79 and the lowest price I found for local Eggs were $6.89, again 12 count large white Eggs by the way.
This is going to put a huge dent in my food budget ...
Oh yes and its still happening. Egg prices have risen a lot. And there are free range chicken farms which have had to keep their birds indoors.
At todays exchange rate USA eggs are £6.55 per doz, my wife said today that she would not pay £2.99 per doz until I told her what USA has to pay. She could not believe it.
