If you’ve been to the grocery store lately, you may have noticed higher prices.
Some of the food items we eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner — including eggs, meat and produce — are getting more expensive, according to new figures from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
These 10 Grocery Items Are Getting More Expensive…
Food costs overall only rose 1.5%, according to the Bureau. But when we look at groceries, which many of us have purchased more of due to sheltering in place in response to the coronavirus pandemic, prices on many common food staples have risen.
Here are the 10 major price hikes based on percentage change from March to April 2020:
|Food Item||Seasonally adjusted % change
|Various Pork, Including Roasts, Steaks & Ribs||10.1%|
|Oranges, Including Tangerines||5.6%|
