Tamara Stutzman calls four-dollars-a-gallon "crazy."

She's talking about the cost for milk in Lincoln supermarkets and although she says she can't cut back on her daughter Avrianan's consumption, she will shop around for the lowest price.

Produers blame rising production costs, including feed and a shrinking number of producers, as several factors behind the price increase.

Local dairy farmer Randy Newsome says the supply shortage is actually helping his bottom line. After two years of record low prices, he says producers need this to survive.

However, he wants consumers to know that dairy farmers aren't gouging prices and that eventually the cost-per-gallon will come down.
