What do rice and peppers now cost in Liberia?

Sunday, Sept. 7, 2014

An excerpt from a Liberian Observer article entitled 10 Things You Need in Your Home During The Ebola Crisis details the rising cost of rice and hot peppers in Liberia:

We are now facing a major economic collapse, as you will agree with me that a bag of rice that once cost $35 is now $50, and in some places $55.  Pepper that was at least five pods for five Liberian dollars has now reduced to three pods for five dollars or has at least increased to three times the price that it was before the crisis.
