While the Gaston Gazette tracks gas prices, the Belmont Front Porch watches for things that we consider to be closer indicators of cost of living and quality of life: Milk and bread prices.

We tracked milk and bread prices from four local outlets of national/regional chain stores:

Wed 1/16/08

Aldi Bi-Lo Food Lion Walmart
         
Whole Milk $3.79 $4.79 $4.19 $4.52
2% Milk $3.69 $4.79 $4.19 $4.08
Skim Milk $3.59 $4.19 $4.19 $3.73
         
White Bread $.75 $1.09 $1.07 $1.16
Wheat Bread $.99 $1.49 $1.69 $1.52

All prices reflect the “house brands” of each store, not the name brands.

Oh, and you can get unleaded regular gas at the station on Pole Branch Road (Hwy 273) just over the state line below Seven Oaks for $2.84/galllon (Friday  1/18/08 prices).
