Today, I went to Ralph’s to buy soda for tomorrow’s Thanksgiving dinner.
I had trouble locating drinks because so many were SOLD! Then I realized that the deal
changed. Large coke bottles were selling 3 for $5! Not the normal 8 for $8. There was a
massive price increase of 67% in the coke price!
In contrast, the cheap drinks that few people liked were selling for
88 cent per dollar.
I thought there were such things as a sticker cost, and prices being somewhat sticky.
Nope. Soda prices are quite efficient!
Given that it is only highly carbonated sugar water, I was tempted to buy only 88 cent
bottles but then I thought I would not be grateful or giving thanks tomorrow. Also,
my church friends would complain. So I bought a good mix of soda.
I am thankful for Ralphs that sold coke and the wonderful lesson in economics.
Thank You Jesus for all Your goodness 😀
