It tripled in price here in Argentina this year alone, and even at almost 2 USD per Kilo you are limited to three packs per family in most supermarkets. This year, at times there simply wasn’t any to be had.
Just had a phone call with a friend in USA, he’s got good info that sugar prices will be going up soon even more in USA.
Sugar has unlimited shelf life if stored moist free, its one of those staple foods you’re always using, no matter how much you have you’ll end up using it eventually.
Do yourself a favor and buy a good amount of it next time you go to the supermarket.
You’ll get that warm fuzzy feeling when you see the prices go up and you already have a couple of years of it stashed.
