Data graphic: Track grocery price trends

Family grocery bills are on the rise with higher prices for most items, led by a significant increase in egg prices. But unless shoppers are taking notes, it can be hard to see exactly which items are seeing the biggest increases.

NBC News is tracking average point-of-sale prices and how much those prices have changed since February 2022 for six popular supermarket items: orange juice, eggs, chicken breast, fresh ground beef, bacon and bread.

Readers can use this interactive chart to see how the prices they paid for groceries differ from the national average or from the prices shoppers pay in other major metro areas.

It aims to track the impact of inflation on consumers’ wallets during the pandemic and as the economy reopens. The White House has said that inflation is rising and will remain so.

The NBC News Grocery Price Tracker is a measure of the consequences for the general public of President Joe Biden’s economic policies.

The Federal Reserve has said that prices have risen and are expected to continue rising. Input costs, especially for food and fuel, have risen, putting pressure on grocery prices. Supply chain disruptions and weather also play a role.

The data in the NBC News Tracker, provided by NielsenIQ, is aggregated from actual checkout prices paid at grocery stores, drugstores, mass merchandisers, selected dollar stores, selected warehouse clubs and military commissaries across the country.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics’ monthly Consumer Price Index, which uses human data gatherers and includes other food product categories, is another resource for average price data.
