Concern Over Rising Milk Prices
NPR's Cheryl Corley reports from Chicago on public concern about rising milk prices. Two big supermarket chains, Jewel and Dominicks have charged as much as three dollars and 69 cents for a gallon of milk. This contrasts sharply with the low cost of raw milk, which has dropped significantly from 1998. A dozen Chicago residents are suing the stores charging them with secretly setting the prices.
