What Other Products Have You Noticed That Have Skyrocketed in Price?

We've been in the middle of a remodeling project at our house and I almost fell down in the paint department when I saw the prices for a gallon.  I had to buy 5 gallons plus some Kilz and thought that my credit card might get declined as I was trying to checkout.  The last time I bought paint, it was about $10 cheaper than what I spent a few weekends ago.

What are you noticing in the stores as far as prices?  Anything catch you off guard like the paint did for me?  Let me know over on my Facebook page - Jessica On The Radio.
