Weekly Wonder

The price of eggs has become a big talking point in the U.S. this past month, but there are few ways for consumers to track said price. That is until now.

  • A pioneering Redditor dubbed u/wise_genesis has developed a new website to fill the gap.
  • Eggspensive.net essentially tracks the price of eggs at every U.S.-based Walmart and plots those prices on an interactive map.
  • Deep green denotes the lowest prices, while dark red dots are where you’ll pay the most for that omelet.
  • The map shows you’ll find the cheapest eggs in the eastern continental United States.
  • In some states, you’ll pay less than $2 for a dozen.
  • California, Nevada, and Colorado have some of the highest egg prices in the country, jumping to just under $7 per dozen at some stores.
  • That’s an expensive omelet.
  • The site also displays data from specific Walmart stores to plan your shop accordingly.

While the price of several foodstuffs has ballooned in response to inflation, eggs have seemingly been hit the hardest. This is also causing other items that rely on eggs to spike, like those delicious baked goods.

Thankfully, it seems the prices are finally dropping, albeit slowly.

Something extra: If you’re one of those people who love using very very often, this website provides a varying number of very substitutes. All you need is an adjective, and the site spits out a more eloquent alternative you can use in daily conversations. Very cool!

Have a great week!
