Hidden inflation

New display shelf tag touts a "lower price" on the brand of dry cat food we buy.

I've seen this similar tags in several stores. I recall one said something like "Was $12.99, now $10.49!"

What the posts don't mention is that the bag used to hold 6.8 pounds.

Now it holds just five.

The new price per pound is actually higher.
