Certain foods will go up more than others.

I noticed that the gas station on my way from work had dropped gas prices by four cents a gallon, so I slapped the turn signal and swerved quickly into the lot for my chance at a killer deal.

Some of you may have seen the same thing lately-but just when you thought there was some light at the end of the tunnel, Putin has screwed the planet. Don’t get me wrong, the invasion is a truly terrible thing for the people of Ukraine-but the military action means repercussions for the rest of the world as well.

According to WFLA, fuel prices will almost certainly be rising in the Bay, and almost instantly. Overnight, stocks went straight down the crapper, while oil prices rocketed upward.

Russia is among the largest producers of oil and natural gas on Earth, and the war could complicate export of both. Some experts have already estimated a .30 per gallon increase in fuel prices.

If they are right, that means Tampa will soon see $4.00 a gallon gas. Because of the high fuel prices, increases in grocery costs are also expected.

Grain-based foods are expected to rise the most. The conflict is also expected to affect the stock market.

The good news? If the conflict ends quickly, the disruption in supplies would end just as quickly as it started. Buckle up, everyone! It could be a wild ride!

Sean Roberts was conceived in the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky by two passionate, panel aligning, third shifters who had grown bored with the same ole same ole. Upon birth, he was placed in the trunk of a new Stingray and sent off to find his destiny. That destiny included several stints on radio stations across the United States. Some played punk country gospel, while others focused on Croatian death metal played backwards. After many years and many adventures, Sean wound up on The Shark, where he does shots of tequila while playing the most badass tunes ever created by humankind. He remains humble, however, never forgetting about the lean years...the street corners and dark alleys where he played songs on his car stereo for food and sex. He's on top and he's never gonna stop LIVING THE DREAM!
