Egg Prices Lowest In A Decade
Eggs are cheap right now. In a grocery store, a dozen is selling for 77 cents. Retail prices haven't been this low in more than a decade, in 2006, according to Maro Ibarburu with the Egg Industry Center at Iowa State University. He provides statistical and economic information to egg producers. While that's nice for consumers, it's not so great for the farmer. Producer prices have been lower than the cost of production for more than a year.
