I have been hearing all week about the prices of groceries being on the rise. The subject that is causing this is the lack of rain. It seems that there are a lot of areas in this country that have suffered from droughts. This has an effect on many different things, including the price of groceries.
It is amazing to me to think about all of these things and how they work together. It starts in this case with a lack of rain. This leads to bad crops. Bad crops lead to a shortage of crops and that is when prices rise. These crops are now more valuable because there is a demand for them yet there is a shortage of them.
