Thickens and causes engine wear during cold) which is a huge incentive for farmers to forgo producing other crops, such as wheat. Which is starting to be imported at a more rapid rate and is why brand name wheat bread has skyrocketed in price.

Do you have a source or anything that backs up the idea statement that we are now producing less wheat or are exporting more of it? I'm not challenging you here, btw, but I seriously, seriously question if the rising prices you refer to are the result of production, exports or any other force of supply and demand.

Just curious.
