As you can see, the egg prices vary between these three stores in Rochester, Minnesota.  Hopefully, we won't get to $4.00 for 12 eggs like we've seen in the past when viruses hit and cause shortages.  Time will tell though.

I'll be keeping an eye on these prices and will report any huge changes on my Facebook page - Jessica On The Radio.  And if you notice any huge hikes, please send me a message.  I don't go to the store every day so I may miss it.
