CBS6 Consumer Index Aug. 8

The higher price of most groceries, at local supermarkets this month is not much of a surprise after taking a look at our monthly CBS6 consumer index.

The few items, that dropped in price:
  • Butter Down nearly .30
  • carrots - Down by .60
  • cheese - A big drop -- down by more than $1.50
According to Steve Ammerman with the New York State Farm Bureau tells CBS6 that demand for cheese is down.

Staying the same price this month:
  • Apples
  • Coffee
Groceries costing you more:
  • Milk
  • Orange juice
  • Eggs
  • White rice
  • Ground beef
  • White bread
  • Cheerios

CBS6 has reported for weeks now on how the nationwide drought is affecting food prices.

Ammerman says that is the case here with the cost of corn, soybeans, hay, and possibly grains rising -- affecting a lot of these products.

He also says last spring's freeze in Florida, is still to blame for the higher orange juice prices.
