Get ready to shell out more money for basic living costs this year.
Food prices are expected to rise by about 4 percent, or $32 a month, if you budget about $200 a week for groceries, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion. It doesn’t matter if you’re buying cereal or prime rib. An ongoing drought in parts of the country was cited for the higher prices expected for everything from grains and vegetables to milk and beef.
