  • On the price of eggs, generally


    Thanks so much to everyone who commented on my update about the price of eggs out here in Los Angeles. It’s so interesting to learn what eggs cost throughout the country. One thing is clear: the price has gone up everywhere.

    So I did a quick search and discovered this January 8 article asserting that the price increase is due to a reduced supply and increased demand. The gist is that farmers are reducing the number of chickens to comply with (voluntary) increases in cage space, some farms have closed, and people are eating more eggs. I know that I buy a lot more eggs now than I did a few years ago, and it’s not all because I have more mouths to feed.

    I just posted a poll over at CFO Reviews, so I’m going to post one here, too (if you’re reading this via RSS, please click through to the post to vote):

    Has the increased price of eggs changed your grocery shopping or menu planning?
    Not at all

    1. I live in the UK and the price of eggs has gone up by over a third since Christmas. I would love to know how the supermarkets can warrant this type of price hype on a basic food item.
