Paying More This Fall

by Kim Brixton

There are 10 things that will cost you more this fall .

Sandwiches, chocolate, airfare, school supplies are some of the things on the list.

Bacon too---

The average price of bacon is up 14 percent from last year and 41 percent from 2012, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Bacon now costs $6.11 per pound, an all-time high. Bacon prices were skyrocketing before a diarrhea virus killed 13 percent of the U.S. hog herd, and that epidemic just made everything worse. The cost of feed for farmers has been surging as well, mostly due to a prolonged drought across much of the country.
