Is It Really Cheaper to Drink than to Eat?
Well Apparently, Alcohol Has Gotten Relatively Cheaper at Least
Warning, This Is Not an Encouragement to Drink Alcohol!
Since December 2010 consumer prices for Food have increased by 47% at more than twice the rate of Alcohol at 20%. Different price increases do, however, not mean that in absolute terms things are cheaper or more expensive. They only tell us that things have gotten relatively more or less expensive.
As a reference point: Overall consumer prices as measured by the harmonised EU methodology increased by 27% over the period.
Warning: We are, of course, not advocating the use of alcohol!
