Lame! I'm hungry and I damn well want my Rice Krispies to continue to come in 18oz boxen. Jerks.

I've noticed that with Coke too. They introduced a slightly smaller bottle 16oz (vs the standard 20oz). And it is priced at 99cents, the price the 20oz was up until recently.

I bought some ice cream last week. Instead of buying a 1/2 gallon, I later realized that the box was "1-1/2 Quarts".

Arrgh, it was my favorite flavor too!

That one, and anything else single-serving packaged, can be explained by people complaining about too-large portion sizes and blaming them for overweight people.

this is what the closed minds do not realize about the current price of fuel. EVERY consumer good and service is affected by it. raising prices, or in this case shrinking the package, is inevitable.

what kills me is that interest rates are being lowered. i've taken measures to reduce or eliminate all kinds of consumption including debt(except a mortgage).

so now, gas prices are up and my accumilating interest is down. how bass-ackwards is that for responsible people.

i say raise interest rates and lower fuel prices!!!
