According to the Kansas City Board of Trade, the price per bushel of wheat exactly five years ago (March 19, 2003) was 3.42. Today (March 19, 2008), that price increased about 228% and closed at 11.23 per bushel. Expect your slices of pizza and bread at the local grocery to show significant increases. Of course, this might be a good thing. Who needs all those carbs anyway!
