I have a horse farm, and the price for an average 50lb of grain has gone up from $4.99 to $21.99 since 2006. Hay prices have gone up from $2.50 for an 80lb bail to costing to around $300/ton (you can do the math)

The price increases have accelerated massively, and the #1 cause was the move to ethanol and then health insurance and taxes and what not has made this pop up another 30-40% in the last 5 years.

Silent/stealth inflation will hit people more now, becuase we have had started to print money big time. But if you want to see stealth inflation compare the price of a Peanut Buster Parfait frm 1990 until now ...
