Due to Drought, Climate, Weather Changes
According to about.com’s Robert Longley, about 87 percent of the 2012 corn crop and 85 percent of the soybean crop stand to be ruined by the “extreme to exceptional” drought that has slammed more than half the country. The U.S. Agriculture Department had predicted corn yields to reach be the nation’s biggest harvest ever in the spring, when farmers planted 96.4 million acres of corn — the most since 1937. But it cut its estimate a month ago and again Friday, saying it now expects the nation to produce 10.8 billion bushels, the least since 2006. Corn is used as a benchmark for rising prices since it is used as an ingredient in everything from cosmetics to cereal, colas and candy bars.

Adding to increased pricing pressure is the USDA’s proposed purchase of as much as $170 million worth of pork, lamb, chicken and fish for national food nutrition programs, such as food banks.

This early purchase might result in less inventory – the unintended consequence of which will be higher prices.
Families with tight budgets will also be feeling the squeeze in the coming months when filling their tanks. With the price of gas already high during the summer months, the higher cost of ethanol, which is made from corn and blended with gasoline, is expected to raise gas prices 6 cents a gallon.
