Thanks for the info Verlee.  Looks like no more $.99 peanut butter.  Somehow I doubt even when the crops are good that we will see that price again.  Hopefully the stores will have some good sales between now and November so we can all stock up.

When I was at the store today I made a point of looking at the prices for different brands of peanut butter.  Unless the price hike is already in effect, jif is one high priced peanut butter already($3.49 for a small jar).  The rest of the brands, even the store brand, are already  pricey.    Should be interesting to see how high they think they can go before nobody can afford to buy their products.

Sara, that price seems pretty reasonable for 6 lbs of p.b.! I'm not sure where I would store that big of a container. lol But I'm definitely going to get a few containers at the market this weekend, to get me through my Christmas baking.

I stock up at a place not far from me that is a nut packing house. (I call it the Nut House) On Tuesday they have senior day and I get 15% off.  When they are not having a warehouse sale I can get a jar for around $2.00 with a warehouse sale it is less so I stock up.
