Corn prices

racer x | Dec 1, 201409:53 AM     4

NPR recently broadcast a report on how a fantastic corn harvest this year has been causing a glut in the market, made even worse by farmers being unable to transport all of the corn available due to a shortage of rail space (from a recent jump in the amount of oil being transported via rail). This has supposedly resulted in the lowest corn prices in 5 years.

Have the prices of fresh corn where you shop fallen?

(I realize that much of the corn grown in the US is not intended for human consumption, but I would imagine that many of the factors affecting the harvest would be the same for both types of corn.)
