In 2013, more dough needed to buy food
Consumers in McHenry County and across the nation can expect to pay more for that savory pork roast, porterhouse steak or a carton of eggs in the new year.
For 2013, the U.S. Department of Agriculture projects a 3 to 4 percent increase in the price of meats, poultry and fish, and a 3.5 to 4.5 percent increase in the price of dairy products. That’s more than the typical 2.8 percent rate of inflation for food.
Higher prices inevitably will be passed on to consumers, local grocers said.
