A Vision of things to come?

Good morning, Netizens…

In this morning’s picture, a woman walks by empty shelves in a supermarket during a transport strike in Barcelona, Spain. Truckers in Spain stepped up protests against rising fuel prices, causing mayhem on highways and resulting in supplies not reaching stores. (Samuel Aranda/Getty Images) (June 10, 2008)

With the prices of fuel rising at obscene rapidity, could this become a view of neighborhood grocery stores in the United States? Or, instead of following the trends in Spain, will the prices for fresh produce simply escalate beyond our ability to pay?

Plus we have another “added attraction” facing our grocery supply lines: the weather this year has turned unmercifully bad for produce growers in key areas of the United States.

Are you worried about the rising prices at the checkout stand, in addition to the price of fuel?

Seems like a good way to kick things off on Hump Day to me.

Dave
