Hamburger Price Going Up Again

It's getting to the point where people cannot even afford to buy hamburger.
From CNS News: The average price of a pound of ground beef climbed to another record high -- $4.235 per pound -- in the United States in January, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
In August 2014, the average price for a pound of all types of ground beef topped $4 for the first time, hitting $4.013, according to the BLS. 
In September, the average price jumped to $4.096 per pound; in October, the average price climbed to $4.154 per pound; and in November, the average price climbed to $4.201 per pound. In December, the price declined slightly to $4.156 per pound. But in January 2015,ground beef hit the highest price ever recorded at $4.235 per pound.
I've noticed that you have to pay close to $17 for a 5 pound hamburger roll in Kingman.  For a 10 pound roll, it is about $30.
It's almost to the point where people will have to become vegetarians because they cannot afford meat.
Poor Wimpy, he may have to give up hamburgers:
