Have to get a picture from 2021 next time I remember.

This is April 2020. Image
April 2021 flour price at same Costco now up to $7.29. #Inflation Image
Costco flour now price inflated to $7.99 for a bag. #inflation is real. Image
Now one full year later update from original tracking of Costco flour price in time for the holiday baking season $8.49.

Food has much higher outsized #inflation than headline numbers. $COST Image
So if Government data tells us pricing is only up 2% and Costco maintains a pretty strict margin requirement, but is showing inflation of 21% with steady gains over the past 12 months who do you believe? Press release or your wallet? Image
Now as of February 2022 price is $9.99.

Pretty big leap from prior $8.49 Image
Wheat price futures do not indicate a slowdown in the cost of my flour.

Ballpark guestimate here, this flour will be $19.99 anytime now.

Which would be an pretty dramatic acceleration of inflation on a rather staple food product.
This is at least the second price increase on this flour in 2022 by Costco.

April 29, 2022 price of this flour is now $10.49.

Another 5% increase. Still don't think we are seeing wheat futures price impact. Image
April 2020 price on the same brand, quantity $6.99 June 2022 price $11.59.

#Inflation is out of control.

It's outpacing prior price growth on core food staples. #CPI #CPIdata #CPIInflation $COST ImageImage
