Bargain: Bacon is 25% Cheaper Now
NEW YORK -- Bacon lovers can breathe a sigh of smoky relief. No, a study didn't find bacon to be healthy. But America's favorite smoked meat is more affordable today. A one-pound package of bacon is 25% cheaper now than a year ago, according to U.S. Agriculture Department data. That's over a dollar and a quarter in savings and puts bacon back on par with breakfast sausage prices.
