The Hershey High Way

$4.00 a gallon gas, fine. I'll deal with it. But THIS is an OUTRAGE.

From Bloggingstocks.com:
Hershey raises prices after posting terrible earnings

The relationship between Hershey Co. (NYSE: HSY) and Wall Street has been sour for a while. Shares of the chocolate maker have plunged more than 30% over the past year amid concerns about rising commodity prices and the growth of healthier eating habits. Now, the confectioner is raising wholesale prices by an average of 13% on one-third of its domestic product line effective immediately .

Chocoholics are paying the price for higher costs for raw materials, fuel, utilities, and transportation.

...Yet another reason for people to eat healthy.
And we don't need the smart-ass remark about eating healthy at the end either.
