In an odd confluence of modern supply and demand, cheese prices are expected to jump sharply in the coming months. Rising gas prices are spiking the cost to move the milk around, and the corn used to feed the cows is more expensive due in part to increased demand for Ethanol. Papa John, Fat Jimmy, and Pizza the Hut have warned that more expensive pizza is on the way. Processed nacho cheese product costs appear stable at this time.
