A carton of eggs cost more than a minimum priced UberX ride

In California, the price of a dozen eggs is almost $6. Proposition 2 is the primary reason eggs are soaring in price and breaking your bank account. Grocery stores must only sell eggs coming from chickens with enough room to spread their wings and lay eggs. It gets complicated in California, as this state requirement is decreasing supply of qualified eggs and increasing demand. As a result of this, the cost of eggs have gone up 35 percent, and is reaching as high as 70 percent in some locations.

Imagine paying $6 for a dozen eggs, which cost $1.79 several months ago. A standard UberX ride cost $5 to travel less than a few miles. Ridesharing services have substantially decreased since last year. Even college students can afford to request more Uber, Lyft and Sidecar rides to travel around town. Within a span of a year, the cost of a single ride is almost as cheap as a dozen eggs.

Would you rather drive in a nice luxury vehicle for $5 or purchase a dozen eggs? We definitely would choose an UberX ride to go out and have some fun. All eggs will do is sit around in their cold shells, waiting to be cracked and cooked. However, you can request an UberX ride to clubs, bars, to the movies, and/or to restaurants to heat up your weekend nights.

Back in 2013 and 2014, no ridesharing company could offer a ride for less than a dozen eggs. It was unheard of to get a ride for less than $2. Times have definitely changed in the transportation industry, as the inverse is cheaper rideshare rides and more expensive eggs.

UberPool drivers can spread their wings to transport clients at a $5 flat rate. Right now and for a limited time only, an UberPool trip anywhere in San Francisco will only cost a client $5. It is cheaper to use UberPool to reach your job than it is to purchase a dozen eggs. Uber clients can take an UberPool outside of San Francisco and/or to SFO for a $15 flat rate. A bulk of eggs will run you almost $14. If you prefer a ride solo in an UberX, a trip less than a few miles can cost $5.

Ridesharing riders may soon cut eggs out of their diet to increase ride usage. There are alternatives to eating eggs, but in the meantime you can redistribute money normally spent on eggs to take additional rides in San Francisco at a huge savings. In the long run, you will save on gas, reduce wear and tear on your vehicle, and eliminate parking cost. Most people will soon eliminate eggs from their daily diet, especially if they reach $10 per dozen. However, people need rides around town, a service that UberPool can offer Uber clients at the same cost of a dozen eggs.

Rideshare on!
