The Huffington Post says milk prices could top $6 a gallon next year, thanks to a recently expired farm bill that Congress neglected to act on…
The Farm Bill currently regulates the price of milk. Without the bill, milk prices are projected to climb around four times higher than what the current bill permits, which could lead to skyrocketing prices in grocery stores across the country.
