NCP Blog: Grocery Prices On The Rise

(Originally posted on the NCP Blog, May 15, 2020)


When I went grocery shopping a few days ago, I couldn’t help but notice that the prices were much higher than just a few weeks earlier, during the pre-coronavirus era. In fact, the overall price of groceries jumped 2.6% in April, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics . This was the largest percentage increase from one month to the next since February 1974!


(Sorry, I wanted to write about something non-coronavirus related this week, but it’s difficult since EVERYTHING has been impacted by the pandemic.)
