    So Friday,the 11th,earthquake/tsunami day, I go to the butcher shop at the local store.
    The guy isn't overboard at all.Doesn't seem like he worries much.

    I ask "How's it goin' ?" "Well I'm not swimmin like the Japanese are"

    Then he goes on about how the rice crops just got flooded,Australia's wheat just had 8' of water over it,Argentina's crops got flooded

    And how if we have one more crop disaster,we are kinda screwed.

    Then we will see the food prices really sky rocket

    Dude, if gas really hits $5.00+ a gallon you will see every other price of everything skyrocket.

    ...And then they drop the next year...

    This happens all of the time. Prices fluctuate pretty wide in the agriculture world. And most crop prices are up this year, which is good for farmers (who havent had a crop failure) by putting more cash in their pockets. Its not the end of the world.

    You mean when

    And Physics guy,maybe you haven't noticed,but the prices don't go back down to what they were last year.They drop a little but not all the way.Which kinda means they keep going up.

    And good for the farmers,as long as WE don't have any major disaster too.

    I'd be more worried about inflation than a disaster. As PG implied, when AG prices go up everybody wants in on that crop the next year and they go down again. But when inflation hits you have to wait ten or more years for your paycheck to catch up.
