Are you paying more for groceries? Grocery bills are driving Americans nuts these days.
Have you noticed how expensive it is go buy groceries when you go to the supermarket these days? Americans are fed up with their grocery bills, Business Insider reports.
Everything has gone up lately. The price for rent, goods and services in general have gone up quite a bit this year but the most noticeable price hikes are for groceries.
The Associated Press reported that U.S. consumer prices have soared nearly 6.2% last year. This is the most it has gone up since 1990.
Read this from Business Insider:
In a recent Bank of America Research note, a team led by Robert F. Ohmes surveyed over 1,000 Americans and found nearly 600 noticed the most dramatic price increases at grocery stores.
Of all the goods and services that have experienced inflation this year, people have noticed price hikes for groceries the most.
Restaurants, bars, and eating out came in second by a wide margin, with just about 200 Americans feeling the pinch there.
Takeout and food delivery followed next, with about 175 respondents feeling the price hike.
That's all to say: Americans' pockets are hurting the most when it comes to food. Because groceries are everyday necessities, it makes sense that everyone is noticing the price of, say, milk going up more than anything else.
