Price of Flour Rising

Rising fuel prices aren't just being felt at the pump... it's also impacting bakeries.

The cost of flour has greatly increased, forcing many bakeries to raise their prices, and others out of business.

Some bakery owners are paying about three times more for flour than they were last year. The increase is due to the rising cost of gas and energy.

Some farmers are now growing less wheat and growing more corn, which is being used for ethanol.
