While speaking about inflation, Fox News anchor Sandra Smith informed audiences she paid nearly $11 for a gallon of milk in New York City - but some people are confused.
On Friday morning's episode of America's Newroom, Smith, 41, spoke about her experience with inflation.
"I bought a gallon of milk last night, granted we live in New York things are higher priced than a lot of other areas in the country, it's nearly $11 for a gallon of milk at a New York grocery store," Smith said.
As inflation continues to soar, the agriculture industry is being forced to raise its prices to keep up with production, no doubt food has become more expensive.
But viewers questioned Smith's claim of $11 per gallon of milk.
"Complaining about inflation, Fox anchor Sandra Smith says it's nearly $11 for a gallon of milk in New York -- there's no way this is true, right? New Yorkers, help me out here," Lis Power said on Twitter.

At Trader Joe's, organic milk is the most costly at $6.99 per gallon.
Both stores are popular places for people to grocery shop and have many milk and milk alternative options that cost under $5.
However, it seems Smith could have been shopping at Food Emporium where the most expensive milk you can buy is a gallon of organic whole milk for a whopping $9.99.
If you\u2019re buying organic milk, then yes. It\u2019s around $10 for a gallon of organic milk at the grocery store. \n\nHowever if you shop at BJ\u2019s, Costco then it\u2019s a few dollars cheaper for organic milk.\n\nNon-organic milk is half the price.
