FOX Sports reports that the hottest cooking oils are now off the shelves.
The popular brands are now available at a price of $9.99 per gallon, while others are on sale for $3.99.
The average price of the three brands are up by $2.30 per gallon.
The newest and most popular brands, as well as some of the cheaper ones, are still listed as available on the brand guide.
The new prices are in line with what consumers are paying for oils from some of America’s leading brands, including Heinz, Listerine and Procter & Gamble.
For example, the brand of oil from Heinz was selling for $1.95 per gallon on Wednesday, while the brand with the cheapest price was $3 per gallon at the Kroger supermarket in New Jersey.
Heinz is the largest food processor and producer in the country.
A price freeze also affects the supply of the more popular brands.
While brands like Listerines and Proctor & Gamble are still on sale at the grocery store, Kroger is selling the Heinz brands on their own as well.
Listerinus and Pro-Gram have not been frozen.
For the most part, the price freeze is a result of the food and agriculture industries pushing back against a government proposal to allow prices to rise.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently announced it would allow a rise in the cost of oil and gas as long as the industry can prove it can lower costs through technology.
“There’s a lot of uncertainty and a lot more cost that needs to be addressed,” said Andrew Kost, a spokesman for the National Association of Convenience Stores.
“The industry is looking to make sure that prices stay low.”
The U.N. Food Security Panel says the oil market is one of the most important sectors of the global economy, with prices for food and energy increasing rapidly.
In 2015, the world spent $6.3 trillion on food, up from $4.7 trillion in 2014, according to the U.K. government.
Last month, the World Food Programme, which manages food aid for over 70 countries, said the global price of oil was expected to rise by 3 percent in 2021 and 3 percent each year through 2030.
