Has anyone noticed an unusual rise in the price of rice, flour and sugar in their areas. I am in the Tx panhandle and about 2 weeks ago I could get rice 20 lbs for 2.77 the same brand is now 7.97. Flour and sugar have gone up about 20 percent also. I went to the same walmart and about choked when I went to pick up another couple bags of rice. Now I know 7.97 is not alot of money in this day and age but such a jump in 2 weeks and the stuff was not on sale last time I went.
