Inflation index

By Thomas Macauley on

My primary inflation index is the per-lb price of Foster Farms whole chickens. It is not volatile but has competition and change.

Costco now has them at $1.19/lb up from $0.99 a year ago. 20% inflation.

Grocery Outlet will raise their price again to match soon. ‘Glad for Safeway and GrocOut discount back to about .99/lb now and then in past months. ‘probably wont be so low in coming months.


  1. the cheapest milk outside costco is up to $3.19/gallon from $2.89 in the last couple of weeks. At least gasoline is down under $4/gallon… Are we aupposed to be thankful that it is above $2?

  2. Coscto ground columbian coffee is down to $10.49/3lb. unground is $15.50/3lb
