The drought that's spreading across the Midwest is already squeezing consumers, and it's only going to get worse, as the rising cost of soybeans and corn leads to higher prices for meat, peanut butter and other staples.
A round bale of hay is over $130 these days (when you can find some for sale)--- when it was raining regular it was $35. Wonder why steak costs more?
