Basic Staple Grocery Items and the price changes from last year

With commoditiy prices reaching all-time highs this past month, and the outlook for 2011 harvests being much lower than hoped for due to draught and flood conditions in Europe, China, and the United States, the best place to look for the market inflation is on your grocery store shelves.

1. Bread
What you pay now: $1.41
Last year: $1.37
2. Butter
What you pay now: $3.69
Last year: $3.13
3. Eggs
What you pay now: $1.73
