It's because of that E85 shit. Thanks Iowa. you have tripled the price of corn for your own selfish wants. eithinol is 30% less efficent than gas and is subsidized the the government. And it will never sell anywere but in the midwest. We have more oil in the US than we will ever be able to use but the Democrats wont let us drill for it. Keep voting for the Dems. Iowa. Maybe we can get corn to $15.00 will that make you happy.

Plus, these idiots are shopping at Ron and Marty Costolos little grocery store. These little places are the most expensive places on earth. Go to Walmart! I'msure they are using foodstamps if they live in Solan though.
