Federal officials say you should be ready to spend more money on food next year.

Volpe: “We’re now on track for a year of above-average food price inflation in 2013″.

Richard Volpe is an Agriculture Department analyst. He says the drought is causing dwindling supply of corn, soy, and other crops.

Volpe: “We’re looking at all food to increase three to four percent. Food at home, which is grocery prices, is also projected to increase three to four percent.”
