Retail Milk Prices

(click on image to enlarge)

From time to time someone suggests farm milk prices should be the same throughout the country - sounds fair.

However, take a look at retail prices for one gallon of whole milk in various cities throughout the country. I have sorted them from low to high.

Obviously there is little or no connection with farm milk price. There are many reasons for the differences. There is no pattern. Some are good and some are just a case of retail market power.
