A surplus of potatoes does not mean anything if they are not: a) harvested, b) transported to a warehouse; 3) washed; 4) sorted for quality, damage, or rot; 4) dried; 5) bagged; 6) marketed; 7) shipped , 8) received; 9) stocked to shelves. You are paying for potatoes "on hand" and that is a radically diminished supply.

That's because they're ripping us off. It doesn't end.

yeah honestly $4.50 per 10lb, and this is in the midst of a surplus .. I have switched to just molding fries out of mashed potato mix... anything over $3 for 10lb is robbery
