Bread: IF the cost of wheat went up an additional (let's just say $10 for the sake of argument) the bread on the shelf (that was already paid for by the company and everyone else that has to pay for it to be on the shelf) stays the same ($1.20)
Gas: IF the cost of gas went up an additional $10 the gas that is sitting at the gas station (that was already paid for by the local gas station, even taxes) goes up....
Why? How greedy are coroporations going to get? This corporate greed thing is getting old. I think we should have done something when Gas hit $2.00 I mean if we do find an alternative fuel source, its not going to get popular for another 10 years, because it has be made available. Also what we really need to do is get someone to make an engine that is powered on water and sale that engine to all the car manufactuers. (in fact I've read about this in a Popular Science that someone has created a small rockect engine (something like a miniture rockect set you'd get at the stoe) that is powered on water. I'll try to find a link to the article.
Also (the orginal idea that I stared this topic) please provided the current price of gas in your area.
Currently in my home town in Northeast Ohio gas is $2.72
(also when you name gas prices, you usually go with the lowest number)
