A lot of places have been using the 'fake' excuse of importing their goods has become more expensive due to the pandemic which is true to some extent but honestly after research it does not affect Chip Shops at all and more so convenience stores.

The local Chips shops have been trying to benefit from this pandemic and therefore increased their prices my local chip shop used to charge £5.00 for a standard Chicken burger & chips but now its £7.00 :eek3:

But to be honest everything is more expensive now in general we just need to keep up with the world's demands atm

My salary isn’t going up and the taxes aren’t changing to be aligned to inflation!

I don’t know how new grads are surviving.

Its the ‘small/local’ businesses doing it mostly

I feel that but honestly I see the increase for prices at the local chip shop as a benefit! I am currently working towards a body like a Model before I enter University and also start my work experience etc

Yep... combination of supply chain freezes and labour shortages thanks to lockdowns and similar measures, plus accommodative monetary policy and various fiscal policies keeping purchasing power stable/high.

RTX 3060 RRP is £299
Actual market price is £800+
Everything has gone out of whack nowadays. Be lucky you also aren’t shopping for a graphics card.

I've noticed this too I work in retail, and there have been multiple products we sell that have had their prices go up.
One i can think of is that a bottle of 900ml lucozade went up from £1 to £1.25 in a week, and another that the 24x cans of fizzy drinks we sell have gone up 50p each.

Not as big of a change as your local chippy prices, but I definitely noticed the price of most things going up too

Wow RTX3000 has been out for over a year now.

Anyhow I just remembered that I had this realisation like 3 days ago. Went to the ice cream truck and was thinking of getting soft serve in a cup + 3 banana lollies for £5. Those banana lollies used to be a pound each last time I checked, but I was only able to get 2 banana lollies and I now owe the truck 50p because the soft serve is £2.50 and banana lollies are £1.50!!! Also noticed space raiders are 30p now instead of 25p.

Logistics prices have gone bananas as brexit kicks in. Shipping containers, lorries, pallets, etc.

I 100% knew this thread was going to turn into GPU anger.
