OT: Gasoline vs. Orange Juice

Started by Ed Lee November 24, 2021
Gasoline price reached new highs of $6/gal.

Orange price reached new low of $1/gal (in a Krogger's food for less store).

Is it because too expensive to ship OJ.  I guess CA makes lot of OJ.

OJ cheaper than H2O.  Almost free for local pickup.

Anyone from FL can comment on their local prices?

This is how we learned oranges would be grown in 1999: <https://youtu.be/Sa3Mkiv--6o?t=687> It was a great exhibit, it had smellovision. As you rode by you could smell the oranges

It's about peak orange season here. They are sweet and juicy and cheap at the Alemany farmer's market. I squeeze Mo an orange every morning. Fresh seasonal stuff is great. Mandarins, cranberry beans, bizarre asian melons, artichokes, technicolor cauliflowers. But $1 a gallon is amazing. -- Father Brown's figure remained quite dark and still; but in that instant he had lost his head. His head was always most valuable when he had lost it.

Yes, 99 cents per gallon at the 14th and Folsom FoodsCo. Don't know how long it would last. I picked up 2 gallons (last about a week), but running out of room in fridge and freezer. I use repeated freeze and thaw cycles to remove roughly half of the H2O. I wonder how long half concentrated OJ would last in room temperature. Fed says no inflation. If it takes one gallon of gasoline to ship one gallon of OJ on average, price remains the same. But are we better off than 4 years ago?

Strawberry season used to last 2/3 weeks, during which you would pig yourself on them. And at the end, you didn't want to see another until next year. Ditto raspberries. Now you can get very inferior ones all year round - or at least you could until covid and brexit. Currently it is Egremont Russet season. Yum. Still autumn only; excellent.

They are amazing now, and I don't usually even like strawberries.

Wimpy, squishy things.

Mash some Yukon Golds and never look at another potato again. Boil for an hour, lots of butter and cream and salt. Trust me on this one. -- If a man will begin with certainties, he shall end with doubts, but if he will be content to begin with doubts he shall end in certainties. Francis Bacon

If you pick them yourself off the bush, raspberries aren't a soft mushy mess. I can't stand the texture of storebought blueberries. Those are just gross.

Maybe where you are.

That shit is NOT "orange juice".
> Is it because too expensive to ship OJ.
What part of "from concentrate" do you not understand?
> I guess CA makes lot of > OJ.
All the shitty oranges. The nice ones end up in grocery stores.
> OJ cheaper than H2O.
The way you act, yours had a touch of yeast in it before you got it.
>Almost free for local pickup.
Can you power a space fight booster with it?
> Anyone from FL can comment on their local prices?
I suppose they can, but you can google gas prices and maybe even grocery prices per locality. Ever use google maps?

You live in the wrong part of the world! A good raspberry is one of the three wonderful fruits (the others being Alfonso mangoes and Egremont Russets)

Fine on an Aga or other wood-fired heater, a little expensive otherwise!
