-- the fourth of July is almost here before you start grilling -- to get grilled at the supermarket because food prizes are exploding like fireworks ground beef.
Chicken -- details all all the significantly.
From last year so you know what what's up but -- commodities analysts still -- -- these food prices going out.
You know I tell you it's if they have a lot to do with a lot of issues I think more than anything -- was last year's -- you know the cost of feed for chickens and in cattle.
Went through the roof and that's one of the reasons why you know blew up the price of steak is is approaching five dollars a pound for the fourth of July that's -- -- -- You don't have it in on him but I think what that states that he's got chicken go when they got boiler chickens going up.
You know the only thing that's why right now is hot dogs and I guess hot dogs is pretty American that you're gonna have to -- to that -- the other stuff is gonna so don't.
Now the worst the gap yet let's cricket valued having having a cheap barbecue with cheap -- if they're not going to be hot dogs soft -- baked -- What else is cheap chips and chicken lie right.
You write what you need to ring -- quick easy if you could have been -- it -- so I'm sure.
But op and no you know what's in the bottom line here is that we've had a very challenging year especially when it comes account I mean next here I think things are gonna look a lot better.
You know global demands going to be down the looks like we're gonna have a pretty good crop.
So you know those prices should be down but you know one thing the government continues to want us to pay higher prices they find -- -- -- to do it.
You know it's taken corn in feed -- into the cattle -- feed it to the chickens so my chicken wings are cheaper.
Are there given it to our gas tank in that -- that -- -- the so -- They're going to improve that and then another thing you know a lot of the chicken producers.
Our screen and bloody murder right now they say listen you're driving up the cost defeat.
I you know it's it's harder for me to feed my chickens so you know at the end of the day it's gonna cost to -- more.
-- makes such an important point is we have big get a big agricultural.
A company executives -- in the capital and saying you know what.
This is just plain out foolish what you're doing with ethanol with corn putting corn in the gas tank.
And it work and it's making corn way more expensive making gas prices expert expense and it's ruining the gas tank go ahead.
It is him and now with this new -- ruling by the Supreme Court the 15%.
You know could even be damage to your vehicle a lot of these makers of the car they're not going to.
You know allow you know and activists say that the warranties valid because they didn't produce these vehicles in these engines.
-- so it's going to be kind of a scary time again the government doesn't -- -- hear that.
You know they think it's a good deal they think it's good for the environmental.
-- you know tell that to the people around the world that are starving right now it's not such a great idea.
Also it doesn't concern me you know that before people around the world -- you know they're not getting the food supplies that they could.
But here's standpoint about the car warranty may not cover your gas tank it basically -- corn ethanol -- that is that true.
It's true and and a lot of it's not only just the the automobile makers it's a small engine makers you know -- one more or -- -- snow blowers.
You know a lot of these makers are saying hey you know we we didn't sign up for this you know we produce an engine.
That was supposed to be.
You know protecting -- 10% ethanol nobody said 15% and they think it could damage some of the vehicles.
Now that you of course that the people on the other side say now it's not -- impact any thing.
But tell that you know if you have a problem -- -- your gas tanks -- -- out and you wanna get a -- are gonna tell you you know sorry Charlie you're out -- -- -- take a hike but you know if Phil why chicken chicken going fill up so much.
You know I don't it was really didn't -- the drop -- to remember the last Super Bowl I would panic because you're talking about a chicken wing shortage.

Then the prices came back down.
Al Al lot of the house then the trial that the feed costs have gone through the roof you look at the price of -- It's been through the roof I I do think it is in the -- the world that I do you think prices are gonna come back a little bit but.
