Consumer Index: May 2013

ALBANY -- Would you believe that some of the foods you're buying in local grocery stores this month, are actually less expensive than across the rest of the country?
That's just one of the current findings at local supermarkets, as we check out our CBS 6 Consumer Index for May 2013.

Here are some of the changing trends you can expect to find when you hit the stores, based on local averages:

Apples                      Up $.05
White Rice                Up $.10
Ground Beef              Up $.15
Orange Juice             Up $.40

Cheerios                   No Change
Cheese Slices            No Change

Gallon Milk               Down $.15
Butter                       Down $.25
Dozen Eggs               Down $.59
Carrots                     Down $.50
Coffee                      Down $.85
White Bread              Down $.88

Regarding higher orange juice prices, Steve Ammerman at the New York State Farm Bureau says that following colder growing conditions in Florida, the USDA just cut its forecast of orange output in that state for a fifth straight month - pushing prices higher.

He adds that our local prices for milk and eggs right now, are below the current national averages.

And coffee prices continue to fall, Ammerman says, after hitting a peak in 2011 - when the supply dropped due to poor growing conditions.
