Price of Crystal Water goes up

Story PictureThe cost of living keeps soaring. In the past days we have reported on the huge increases in the prices of fuel that has climbed an average of one dollar twenty-five cents in two weeks. Potato prices have gone up to two dollars and fifty cents per pound…and with little relief in sight, today the price of distilled water shot up. For a five gallon bottle of water directly purchased from the distributor for Crystal at Bowen and Bowen, you will now need to scramble up an additional dollar and ten cents as the price has gone up from two dollars and twenty cents to three dollars and thirty cents. But if you buy from the Crystal delivery trucks you are in luck for now at least, and you will pay still four-seventy-five a gallon. But sources tell News Five that shortly it will go above the five dollar mark. When News Five contacted the Manager of Crystal, Michael Kelly, we were told he was in meetings and then sick for the day and then unavailable to comment.
