Costly food

(article, Culinate staff)

We all know grocery prices have gone up, but just how much? Although prices vary a lot (eggs are up 28 percent; bacon prices have hardly risen), the average is about 10 percent over last year, according to the folks on NPR's "Day to Day." That's the biggest increase since 1990. Although milk prices may be falling, experts are predicting that others will remain at current levels — or go higher.
