Produce prices ‘’soaring”, oil price blamed

Public Policy

Disrupted oil production in the Gulf of Mexico remains one of the key reasons why oil prices have hovered near a record $55 per barrel in recent days, and as those prices rise, so do pump prices for gasoline and diesel.

But shipments of fruits and vegetables from the Southeastern U.S., especially hard-hit Florida, also have been affected, and grocers are passing a chunk of the sharp price increases on to consumers.

Sunbury-based Weis Markets Inc., operator of 158 stores in six states, is among other grocers in the Northeast who have started posting signs in produce departments explaining to consumers the sudden price increases.
