Rising Diesel Fuel Prices Threaten Sharply Higher Prices for Kosher for Passover

Queens, NY… Hershel had filled out his price list for Passover only to notice that some of the canned good’s items were sharply higher than he projected. When he called the distributor, he was told: “Do you know what I paid for diesel to get the delivery to you?” He sheepishly crossed out the prices he so carefully prepared for pricing that was 12% higher to reflect the invoice he had just received. This scene may repeat itself all over the country as fuel prices skyrocket especially with the uncertainty that lies ahead in the Russian invasion of the Ukraine. Prices are already 10% -12% higher than a year ago on average with meat and poultry almost double that.
