I occasionally post on this website my personal observations of what I am seeing and experiencing in my area (small town in western North Carolina). Compare this with what you are hearing from other parts of the country, and with what you are experiencing in your area. Look for and react to trends, not isolated incidences.
Eggs in my area remain under $2 a dozen, after dropping in price back in late April / early May. The going price for a dozen large white eggs around here is between $1.78 and $1.98, depending on which store you are at, and there seems to be a plentiful supply of both white and brown eggs at all stores. The eggpocalypse seems to be over, at least around here.
Other Food Prices Rising?
Even as eggs have dropped in price, other food prices seem to be rising again, especially fresh meats, snack foods, and bread. A loaf of the store brand whole wheat bread sold for $1.84 last month. Now that same loaf at that same store is $2.27. An 8-pack of hamburger buns is also up by about the same amount. Prices of hamburger meat, turkey, hot dog weenies, and most pre-packaged sandwich meats have all jumped over the last month or so. Chicken prices seem to be holding steady, but haven't fallen off their previous highs.
