The Great Price Rise

Damned hurricanes, terrorists and inflation in general! The price of gas has gone up and everything else is following suit. I had heard that prices of groceries were going to go up in January, but today’s little trip to the shops suggests that they’ve gone up already. My 1 peso bread roll is now 1.2 pesos, and milk has gone up for 9.7 pesos a litre to over 10 pesos. Chicken apparantly will go from 38 pesos to 49. This is about 20%, which seems crazily high to me! I like my milk (leche) so my students had better watch out! Mind you, if I stuck 20% on my hourly fees, I’d probably get a lot of students quitting!
