Also Trader Joe had all gallons of milk for 2.99 as does Stop&Shop. Was 3.99 last week. Plus starting today Shoprite in NY/CT has 5lb bags of red and Idaho potato for 1.99. Also amply supplies of meat and chicken. And no limits at trader Joe or Stew Leonard. And Stew also has milk for 2.99. So what is the media trying to do?

    @barrytuneup if you read the article, it said egg prices had already started coming down, and this is on a national basis, supply chain issues in some parts of the country were more challenging that others. I can attest, around here, that Eggs did get up to $3.09 a dzn at Aldi’s for a time. This isn’t a media scare and shortages will come and go as long as there are hot spots and 2nd/3rd waves of this virus. Short supply = price raises supply and demand.
