Probably, when the gas prices go up most resources go up. It is not only yeast are going up but also flour and butter. I just checked the prices on my local store two days ago, and they have gone up by 0.20 - 0.40 cents. How I wish oil prices would go low. Basic commodities are very crucial for our survival. I can't even start to think in baking with all the ingredients getting priced very high. Damn those politicians and greedy businessmen!The yeast prices went up about 30 cents this week. I checked all the stores and the same is true all around. Is there something going on? Why did the yeast prices suddenly jump like that?
Has anyone tried buying yeast in Bulk?Gas prices were to blame. The bad thing is like James just said in the post prior to mine, I noticed they went up again. This is just terrible because I use the yeast for brewing, but also for bread making! Talk about hitting me where it hurts!
