Food Prices Continue Climbing in the USA

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Food indexes continued to rise in February 2011, with sharp increases in the indexes for fresh vegetables and meats contributing to a 0.8 percent increase in the food at home index, the largest since July 2008.

With fuel prices fluctuating wildly and the Japan Crisis looming, consumers may be in for more high food prices this spring. Now is the perfect time to plant a garden or scout out local farmers markets for the upcoming season.
