The price for a gallon of milk is over four dollars and experts say it might not be coming down anytime soon. They also say it's a supply and demand situation that has hit at the same time.
"We're in a world market for dairy products just like we are in a world market for oil and other countries are starting to demand things that we have taken for granted and that is what is affecting the price," says Richard Kilmer a Agricultural Professor at The University of Florida.
We took a look at milk and this is what we found for a gallon of whole milk at some stores in our area.
Winn Dixie had the highest price at $4.39. Publix at $4.29 and CVS and Walgreens had the lowest both at $3.89.
Experts say they expect the prices to drop later this year and even then the price will closer to four dollars then three for a while.
