OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Chickens may not be able to fly very far, but the price of eggs is soaring.

A lingering bird flu outbreak, combined with soaring feed, fuel and labor costs, has led to U.S. egg prices more than doubling over the past year, and hatched a lot of sticker shock on grocery aisles.

Control Food/Energy/Transportaion. It's the simple food items eggs/flour/milk. Stop wake up people. All the evidence is hiding right in front of you. All these shortages/Inflation only hurt the average joe citizen. Think the White House will ever be without eggs? Care how much it costs to heat that place--think the lights will ever flicker at White House. Didn't Yankton just take a 18% electric rate increase? 18%!
