Letter: Going bananas over two years of increases

I just noticed the price of one item that has not changed over the last two years. The price of bananas is still 39 cents a pound.

The economy must be doing OK when bananas are the same as two years ago. Oh, I forgot about gas dropping from $2 per gallon to $4 per gallon. Aah!

I’m glad we can still buy bananas for 39 cents a pound.
