inflation

While dining at my nearby Chick-fil-A, I noticed their lemonade is now selling for $7.95 a gallon. SEVEN NINETY FIVE?!?!

is there a mass shortage on citrus that i'm unaware of? i mean, COME ON! 8 bucks for water and some sugar?!

who knew rising gas prices had such an affect on the fast food industry.

You'd think that citrus would be cheaper now that I am unable to consume it. Weird.

You know how much oil it takes to make a lemon? Neither do I...

How much did it cost before?

lemons cost 50 cents at the grocery store. of course, Chick-Fil-a only uses Sunkist lemons that come from California, so you'll have to talk to Amanda, but you could start making your own; then sell it & make a profit like the chicken king of the south.
i guess i'm still bitter 'cuz we don't have them here.

to clarify: Chick-fil-a's not lemons

We are getting a Chik-Fil-A in our city finally. I think that it is the first in Northern California. Wahoo! Oh, and lemons are about 4 for a $1, I think.
