Wheat Prices Driving Up Cost of Flour

Skyrocketing wheat prices are pushing up the cost of flour.

Everything from pizza and pasta to bread and bagels are being impacted by the price spike.

Flour companies say farmers are switching from growing wheat to growing corn to make ethanol which hurts flour supplies and has pushed prices up 90 percent over the past month.

Now, bakers and pizza makers say they may have to pass some of the increase along to you.
