High prices of wheat on the world market are becoming a cause of serious concern to the governments. My humble suggestion for a solution to this problem, at least in the immediate term- though somewhat selfish-sounding- is, that the USA should stop exporting wheat. All the wheat produced in the country, should stay in the country until the local demand is met, and the surplus may then be exported. Look at the oil prices in the domestic saudi arabian market. The local car driver is paying about 1/4th the price for a gallon of gas as compared to the american or european consumer. Saudi authorities feel that because they produce the oil, their citizens must enjoy the benefits. Why can we not do the same, and give our citizens the benefit of lower prices on all those commodities that we are producing or growing?

We should but if we drill in Alaska,then we would be self sufficiant and the democrats cant use 4 per gal gas as a vote getter in the next election.

The first and formost we should be self sufficiant and not support terrorist nations by buying thier oil.

True if we stockpile wheat,we can have a surplus for us,and sell the rest to other countries.Thats not greedy friend,thats called taking care of AMerica,which for whatever reason if we do it,were idiots,greedy ect,but everyother country does it and its fine.
