Grocery store prices are rising as fuel costs go up

The price at the gas pump is rising, and so is the price of goods at the grocery store.

For grocery store, increasing fuel costs mean possible surcharges on delivery from grocery store suppliers. Gates Big M store manager Greg Newman said he’s been looking to work with vendors who offer good deals in hopes of extending that savings to customers.

“If the surcharges are more than we can handle without raising our prices, of course we’ll have to raise some prices but we’re trying to keep them as low as we can,” said Newman, according to News10 NBC.

Additionally, Newman stated it’s been difficult to restock on some items like toilet paper, pasta, and cat litter.
