Milk cheaper, beer price soars

Stats NZ reports:

The milk’s a touch cheaper, but the beer’s more expensive than it used to be, according to Statistics New Zealand’s annual snapshot of our country.

New Zealand in Profile 2014, released today, shows the average price of two litres of milk fell from $3.23 in 2008 to $3.19 last year, while an average 400ml glass of beer went up from $4.47 to $5.78 in the same five years.

So since 2008 the price of milk has dropped 1.2% and the price of beer has gone up 29.3%. That’s sad!
