"Not just eggs but most things I buy seem more expensive."
It remind me of the change over to the euro when one of the things that was most held up as an example of the inflation caused was the price of a baguette.
Eggs and baguettes are simple items that one buys often, and so can act as a landmark for rising prices..
The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.
