Price Gouging For Oranges

Carpe Diem has put together a nice chart showing the rise in price of various food items and gasoline. Apparently celery went up 53% in the last year. The point of the post seems to be that the prices of gas haven't really gone up that much, but I think the fact that food prices are rising this fast is very significant in its own right. One possible reason? Farm subsidies.
