I have noticed that white eggs are substantially less expensive than brown eggs. Why is this true if brown eggs are local eggs? Shouldn’t they be less expensive if they are not shipped long distances?
Those of us who have been in Massachusetts for a while will remember the advertising campaign, “Brown eggs are local eggs, and local eggs are fresh.” Before that ad campaign, people in New England bought white eggs and did not buy brown eggs. What gives? With diesel at over $4.00 a gallon shouldn’t white eggs be much more pricey?
