The cost of everything is going up. Milk a staple in the homes of people around the country is not immune to the price increases we see in your nearby supermarket. I paid over $4 for a half gallon today. Drought and demand are driving the prices up. Milk was much cheaper earlier in the year and the prices crept up to where they are now which is $5-6 per gallon.
Think of what we love to eat and drink and how those things will be a little more expensive. Milk is a big part of our lives so we will have to live with the price increase.
