Most everything costs more today.

Grocery store prices are still well above last year’s levels, according to NewsNation’s Inflation Index. Agriculture experts are tracking the impact of high prices on consumer demand, and about three-quarters of all shoppers have already changed their habits.

A new threat that could push consumer prices even higher is a potential rail strike. That and overall inflation will likely have an impact on holiday dinners in the months ahead.

 “For instance, instead of buying a ribeye steak, they’re buying a sirloin, or maybe instead of buying a pork chop, they’re buying a ham.”

-Glynn Tonsor, an agriculture economist at Kansas State University
