    the price has/have

    I just want someone to confirm me:

    In The price of bread and butter has increased the use of HAVE - instead of HAS - would be incorrect.

    Thank you.

    Re: the price has/have

    Price here is a general term, so "has"

    The prices of bread and butter have increased... = the individual prices of the commodities...
