oil food costs hunger povertyEvery now and then we do see a rather informative story on how higher fuel costs are impacting food costs.

In this story from San Diego, the reporter made several key points:
"At virtually every link in the nation's food chain, the cost of oil is pushing expenses ever higher.

When the food is stored and processed, it takes a huge amount of energy, which is linked to the price of fossil fuels as well.

The result is bigger and bigger food bills that are causing financial hardship for millions of Americans. "
