Taco prices around the town are on the rise again. The former street base price was at $1.25 pretty consistently but now many trucks are raising their prices to $1.50 or as much as (gasp) $1.75!

What could be causing this taco hike?

  • speculation about the availability of cheap fresh produce because of the drought?
  • the dollar falling with respect to the taco dollar?
  • cabal of taco truck owners colluding in secret to raise prices and stifle competition?
  • new overhead costs? (see taco SEMItruck at tacos sinaloa)
  • supply and demand due to recent influx of hipsters from the mission?
  • gentrification (okay, no clear link, but everyone's favorite bogeyman)


Is there a relationship between taco inflation and sake inflation??
