Food Prices Rising Due To Drought

Beef prices are at their highest level in two decades.

The cost of ground beef has hit $3.55 a pound, according to February government readings.

That's up 56-percent since 2010.

The average for round steak is at $5.28.

The cost of other staples, such as milk, butter, eggs, fruit and vegetables are also climbing.

With a severe drought ravaging farms across most of California, experts say prices could rise even more.
