Prices of eggs, lettuce, sugar and donuts on the rise


Although the establishment media claimed that inflation had eased in August, American households were not relieved in the grocery store aisles.

The price of food at home jumped 0.7% from the previous month. Over the past 12 months, food prices have increased by 13.5%.

Some of the biggest food boosts include:

  • ham up 2.5% from July and 9.2% compared to a year ago.
  • Frankfurters (hot dogs) up 5.3% compared to July and 18.3% compared to a year ago.
  • Eggs up 2.9% from July and 39.8 percent compared to a year ago.
  • Bread up 2.2% from July and 16.2% compared to a year ago.
  • Donuts up 2.0% from July and 14.1% compared to a year ago.
  • Pickles up 4.0% from July and 19.4% compared to a year ago.
  • Margarine up 7.3% from July and 38.3% compared to a year ago.
  • Butter up 2.7% from July and 24.6% compared to a year ago.

According to John Carney of Breitbart News, the median consumer price index (CPI) rose 0.7% from the previous month. It accelerated from the 0.5% increase in June. The median CPI only reflects the measures at the center of the CPI’s price changes.

“The unrounded figure of 0.73789% is the highest on record, slightly above the previous record of 0.73078% set in June,” Carney wrote. “That equates to an annual inflation rate of 9.2%. This is the highest ever recorded.

The median CPI is 6.7%, the biggest 12-month rise since 1983, when the measure began recording 39 years ago.
