Alabama food prices climb in May

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabamians are paying more for groceries
this month.

The Alabama Farmers Federations said the cost of 20 basic market
basket items climbed 2.4 percent in May to a statewide average of
$52.18.

The increase from April was blamed in part on declining meat
production.

The Federation said consumers paid more for beef, poultry and
certain produce items.

Dairy prices, including ice cream, remained unchanged.

The lowest average price for a market basket was found in
northwest Alabama at $50.06.

In south Alabama it was $53.96.
