Just like gas prices, food prices are on the way up as well.

Economists from the Department of Agriculture predict food costs will jump an average of 4 percent this year.

The USDA says higher costs for corn. The primary feed for pigs and chicken may boost pork prices as much as 6-and-a-half percent and eggs 4-and-a-half percent.
