I guess Homer was paying $4.00 a gallon for milk in 2008 then. I was paying a little over $2.00 a gallon for the same brand. Today, it's over $4.00 a gallon.<quoted text>
In many states, Homer's included, there is no free market for milk, with minimum prices set by the state to help the farm lobby.
But, I don't get food stamps, so I have to feel the inflation.
Homer probably gets food stamps and hasn't got a clue what the inflation really amounts to because, if the price of food goes up, he gets more food stamps.... like the current farm bill.
