You can add the price of food to the list of things rapidly rising in price.
Since food producers are also suffering from high gas prices, they are making key changes to their products.

Such companies as Kraft and General Mills are using cheaper ingredients in their products, but keeping the price the same.

Others, such as candy bar makers Hershey and Mars, have raised their prices by at least ten percent twice this year.

Some McDonald's are even putting only one slice of cheese on a double cheeseburger to cut costs and Burger King is testing a smaller Whopper Jr.
