Sunday I wanted to get a pound of 80/20 Ground Beef (chuck) to make stuffed peppers. Unless you bought the jumbo pack of 4# or more the price was $4.29#, Yikes! This is run of the mill GMO corn fed beef from a middle of the road(price wise) supermarket. Just a few years ago it was regularly on sale here for $.99 cents. It's funny that I bough a USDC Choice sirloin steak with decent marbling for $4.99. Ground beef is a staple for people on a tight budget along with chicken and pork. Decent fish is now very expensive.
Americans by far spend the least amount of their income on food than any country in the world and the government says there is minimal inflation but that's not I'm seeing in the grocery aisles.
