After the first quarter of the fiscal year ends in 2014, with the rise of the federal minimum wage, what sort of price increases should we expect?

Asked by pleiades (4910 points ) December 27th, 2013

For instance, in San Diego, gas is about $3.57 per gallon. Should I prepare for it to be $5.57?

How long does it usually take for the rest of the prices to catch up with the minimum wage?

I remember in 2008 it was about 4 months before prices increased and I felt for those first couple of months I had more buying power.
