I'm not an alamist or anything, but I remember reading an article a coupla weeks ago. The gist was that at some point, fuel prices could drive up the cost of shipping food stuffs to the point of becoming unaffordable, or non-profitable for vendors. A fictional example was year round fresh pineapple becoming increasingly difficult to get. Also a possible rise in home canning to hedge winter prices of seasonal veggies.
Got me to thinking of other products like seafood, imported meats, etc. I know this pales in comparison to the plight of many who are affected by prices on simple necessities, but got me thinking nevertheless.
Any thoughts on the subject?
