Rising Tortilla Prices

NPR's Phillip Davis reports from Mexico City about the rise in tortilla prices. For many Mexicans, tortillas are one of the only foods they can afford. The Mexican government was hoping that competition would keep the cost of tortillas down once government subsidies ended, but big tortilla producers have hiked prices as much as 22%. Now authorities are planning to investigate.
