The New Year's table this year will be much more expensive than last: the prices for which have increased the most
If you think that your usual set of products has become more expensive, then you don't think. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the cost of all major food categories has increased. The consumer price index for home food rose 6,4% in November, the most significant annual increase in 13 years. More details about the rise in price told the publication Ksat.
The growth was driven by a number of factors - labor shortages, transportation costs, packaging prices and a surge in demand.
The journalists managed to find statistics on food prices as of December 2020, and then compare them with prices for the same goods in mid-December this year.
The same products that cost $ 202,37 last year have now gone up by about $ 20.
What was discovered
A pound of tenderloin rose more than four percent. Last year, the premium ribeye steak cost $ 16,47 a pound. This year it has grown by almost 32% to $ 21,62 per pound.
The cost of bacon also increased - by 11,5%.
Fresh Atlantic salmon costs 20% more.
The Raisin Bran Crunch box is up over four percent. And Quaker Old-Fashioned Oats are 9,8% more than a year ago.
Iceberg lettuce prices rose 12,3% and a five-pound bag of tangerines rose 44%.
Ice cream did not escape this fate either: the price of a half-gallon package increased by 11,7%.
“Of course, wherever I go, I get less food for the same money,” said customer Janet Murray.
But, as it turned out, many products cost exactly the same as a year ago. These include milk, bread, eggs, orange juice and coffee. Boneless, Skinless HEB Chicken Thighs still cost $ 3,08 a pound. The cost of pork chops remained the same.
“While industry issues continue to affect prices for certain products, HEB is working hard to offset the rising costs so we can continue to offer some of the lowest prices in the country,” the company said in a statement.
Wherever you shop, prices are going up, and economists expect the same situation next year.
And for pea lovers, there is good news: a package of frozen peas has dropped in price by a few pennies.
