The price of %*#@ -in BACON!

Since I am the only one that eats it - together with preparation being a greasy mess just to serve me 3 or 4 strips - we rarely keep bacon in the fridge.  For some reason I got up this morning in the mood for bacon so I went over to Tom Thumb (Safeway) to pick up a tomato (BLT for lunch ) and some bacon.
 
I got the nicest tomato I could find even though the $7/# was more than somewhat offensive.  On my way to the bacon I mused that "Wow, %$!@ - in tomatos are more than the bacon". 
 
WRONG!!!
 
Even run-of the-mill bacon was $8.99/ 12 oz. - almost $12/#!!! 
The thick cut, nitrite-free, applewood smoked stuff I usually buy was "on sale" @ $15+/#!!!
 
Yet, the United States Government tells me that inflation is 1%!  That obvious falsehood leads me to think of one of my favorite sayings: 
 
"It's bad enough that you're pi$$ing on my shoes; just don't try and tell me that it's raining".

What's this precious delicacy going for in your 'hood?
