Grocery Prices Decrease In Statewide Farm Bureau Survey
Grocery prices are down slightly from a year ago and remain almost unchanged from last fall.
That according to Indiana Farm Bureau’s semi-annual “market basket” survey.
The average price on the 16 food items included in the informal survey decreased from the spring of 2013 by 51 cents for an overall total of $48.22..
The same items were down 7 cents from the fall 2013 survey.
The results differ significantly from the national survey coordinated by the American Farm Bureau Federation.
The national survey, which combines the results from 27 states including Indiana, showed that the total cost of the 16 food items was $53.27, up $1.73 from a year ago.
