The Price of Butter

Karl S | Sep 25, 2010 09:30 AM

Here in the Greater Boston area, I've noticed a spike this month in the price of butter. Since Labor Day, butter that previously sold for the past 2 years in value-oriented supermarkets (Market Basket, Hannaford, and Price Rite) for $2/lb has jumped 35-40% in price.

Apparently, this price spike for butter might ease back as production surges, but sugar prices will not (and, frankly, should not).
