    Default Inflating prices

    List a place that you've noticed a massive price inflation at.

    Mine, Freshii just increasing their prices $4 per across the board.

    Vietnamese place, white man meals x2: $36. Previously, $27 which was already a raise from low $20's.

    Biggest scam is McDouble like a Mac didn’t cost anything extra. Now it’s 1.50$ add on

    The biggest thing I noticed that increases in price that isn't regularly on sale is canola oil. That shit used to be $4.xx for 3L. It's like $8 now.

    I've seen that at Costco. Crazy.
    Vanilla Extract used to be $50/bottle. Now it's a lot cheaper surprisingly.

    The Premium Membership cost for this forum keeps increasing. Not sure if I can afford to hang out here much longer.

    The high vanilla prices for a while were caused by a big storm that hit Madagascar and fucked up all the vanilla crops.

    Most of the world's vanilla comes from Madagascar, low supply caused prices to spike.

    I always got big bottles of vanilla for cheap in Mexico. Highly recommend if you know somebody visiting there.

    How many of these places do you think will shut down? No one is going to be paying $17 for a Freshii bowl or $20 an entrée for vermicelli and what is probably a smaller portion of meat isn't going to go over too well.

    I love eating out, but it's getting to the point where half the time you're thinking "I really just paid $xx for this" for half the meal

    Besides the obvious gas prices the price of flour and butter has noticeably increased.
