Food and gas prices on the rise

Whether it’s at the pump or in checkout line at the grocery store, cost of living items are on the rise.

A survey by the Wisconsin Farm Bureau shows food prices are up 5 percent this year.

The bureau’s ‘Marketbasket’ survey totals the cost of 16 food items. In the first three months of 2011, the total was $48. That is up $2.39 from December’s price for the same items.
