I don't know which products exactly this is going to include, but it can't be good news.

The article says Dow plans to raise prices 20% on its "chemicals and plastics." You have to think that this is going to trickle down to a lot of other products because manufacturers use their paints and adhesives to make other things. Plus they make insecticides, which will mean higher costs to farmers, which will result in food prices going up even more.

:( Some days I hate to even look at the news.
