How Much Is That Milk in the Window?

With all the research that's been done on dairy and weight loss, I didn't think there was a silver lining to my milk aversion. Turns out I'm actually saving a lot of cash by ordering soy in my lattes. Remember when Starbucks raised their prices in August? They blamed the extra nine cents per drink on increased dairy costs.

Some people are even cutting their milk consumption so they can afford to drive their cars. Sound extreme? Consider this comparison:

Even with gasoline prices soaring, milk still tops gas prices. The nationwide average for a gallon of whole milk is $3.80, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. That dwarfs the nationwide average of $2.99 for a gallon of unleaded, according to AAA.

The cost of other food and non-alcoholic beverages also rose over the course of the year. Have you noticed?
