Murray Darling and Fruit Prices

With Prime Minister John Howard announcing that the Murray Darling will not be used for agriculture the price of Fruit & Veg in Australia may be set to skyrocket.

A current affair did a video estimating price hikes once the restrictions are in effect (per kilo)

Oranges - $4.97 - $8.70
Apples - $2.71 - $4.74
Pears - $3.98 - $6.97
Plums - $5.94 - $10.40
Macadamia Nuts - $19.98 - $34.97

To combat prices they suggested some people would eat canned fruit or buy imported fruit.
