Which grocery items have been most affected by inflation?

Everyone is talking about the price of eggs being ridiculously high.

It's true. The average price of eggs in December of 2022 was $4.25, compared to $1.79 the year before, according to USA Today.

It's not just eggs, though. Inflation has driven the price of many items through the roof.


Have you noticed the price of butter and margarine? A report shows butter up 24% from last year and margarine up an astounding 38%.

How about flour? Prepared flour mixes are up 23%

There have also been inflation price increases on cereal, rice, and bread.
