Food Price Observations

I’m becoming obsessed with the price of food. For example, one supermarket near me sells OJ for 2 dollars more than one 20 blocks away. (OJ the beverage, not the former football player.)
Also grapes. One place has them for over 3 bucks a pound. Street vendors have them for $1.50 a pound.
This is not about food prices, though. While it is possible that these prices are some sort of economic indicator, that’s not why I think I’m noticing them.
I think my becoming obsessed with food prices is a sign that I’m getting old. What’s next? Losing my hair?
