Grocery store food prices up 1 percent from a year ago
The food-at-home CPI for the second quarter of 2015 was 1 percent higher than the food-at-home CPI for second quarter 2014. Inflation for grocery store foods was slightly lower than average, as some at-home food categories decreased in price—fresh fruits and pork over 5 percent. Lower prices for pork, fresh fruits, fish and seafood, dairy products, and fats and oils offset higher inflation for beef and veal and eggs. Egg prices are among the most volatile retail food prices—the 9-percent rise in retail egg prices partially reflects a decrease in supply from the Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza.
