Grocery Shopping Gets More Expensive

Ouch! Gas prices are up and now, so are food prices.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, food prices jumped last month to the highest level in nearly 2 1/2 years. The average price jump was about a half cent, so not huge, but still noticeable.

In January beef and veal prices went up more than 4%.

Prices for fruits and vegetables are expected to spike this year because of damage caused by the California drought.
