Should Louisiana Limit The Price of Milk?
A recent story out of Perkins Rowe has a Fresh Market there selling milk at a sale price. According to a piece put together by The Advocate, State Agriculture and Forestry Commissioner Mike Strain came down on the grocery chain for selling milk at $2.99 a gallon on Tuesdays. The chain apparently did that as a way to draw customers into the store.
Louisiana State Law requires that milk be sold at a price no less than 6 percent over wholesale, including freight charges.
That means that there will be no more sale on milk at that price for the time being at Fresh Market.
What do you think? Is the state right for regulating this price or should they allow stores to sell it at whatever price they want to? Vote in our poll and let us know what you think.
